California Community Colleges: The Chancellor's Office Should Collect Additional Funds for Questionable Training Agreements.
California State Office of the Auditor General, Sacramento.
This audit report addresses the issue of state funds for community college training courses that should be recovered from several California community colleges. These colleges did not meet the minimum conditions necessary to qualify their training courses for apportionment funding. The report reveals that the Chancellor's Office has only partially implemented the recommendations made in a May 1996 report titled "The State Paid Millions of Dollars to Community Colleges for Questionable Training Agreements." The Chancellor's Office, according to this report, had only reviewed and reclaimed some of the general apportionment funds from San Joaquin Delta, one of three colleges identified in the report. The Chancellor's Office should recalculate and recover the amount of apportionment funds that the three identified districts received. The report suggests that Monterey Peninsula may owe the state as much as $1,095,894; and San Bernardino's potential liability to the state could be as high as $704,189. The report also recommends that the Chancellor's Office continue to identify districts that may have inappropriately received apportionment funding. The office should then determine the correct amount of apportionment funding for those districts and should recover any funds that the districts were not entitled to receive. (NB)
