No Access Until
[Excerpt] This six-month reporting period has seen the continuation of efforts toward improving program administration and management within the Department of Labor (DOL). This is in contrast to earlier periods, when the OIG was committing most of its resources to the statutorily mandated financial and compliance audits of the CETA program. Continued emphasis was directed toward operational reviews of major DOL programs within the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and the Employment Standards Administration (ESA), as well as the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management (OASAM). New attention was focused on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. We have also placed increasing emphasis on prevention activities through training designed to sensitize supervisors and employees to fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement issues and to provide greater front-end review of accounting and financial systems that are currently under development.
