Overall, the Deputy Under Secretary stated that we are in agreement on many issues and that she concurred with many of our findings because she had long been aware of certain deficiencies and had already begun taking corrective actions in a number of critical areas (e.g., reducing excess overhead, reducing overgrading and reducing National Office overhead). She stated that changes were also underway in other areas determined to have some organization and structure problems. Also, other findings are being reviewed to determine the most efficient way of resolving any remaining issues.
We are particularly pleased that the Deputy Under Secretary and the new Director of OFCCP have established a Task Force, with OIG participation, and with an aggressive timetable, to pursue implementation strategies for correcting the weaknesses-identified as a result of the OIG survey work in OFCCP.
The Task Force held its first working meeting on September 26 at which time our findings and recommendations were translated into 13 issues which were broken into four areas: personnel, operations, contractor selection and evaluation. Sub-groups were established for each of the four areas. The sub-groups are to review the audit findings and related recommendations in the 13 issue areas, review the corrective actions taken to date, and then determine what specific additional corrective actions, if any, need to be implemented by the Director of OFCCP and the Deputy Under Secretary. ESA anticipates that the Task Force will have reviewed the sub-group reports and completed its staff work by October 31, 1985.
