As early as January 1973, the Department of Labor was aware of deficiencies in the management of Government property and funds at the Maryland Job Corps Center.

The program at the Center was originally designed to provide comprehensive residential training to 275 young men, 14 to 22 years old. Labor records showing types and quantities of Government property at the Center were inaccurate. Many apparent discrepancies were also found in the financial records maintained at the Center. Labor management and audit reports repeatedly cited deficiencies in the Center's fiscal records and controls, operating procedures, and property management. While Labor officials were aware of these problems early during the contract with Youth Opportunity Foundation, Inc., the deficiencies were not corrected before the Center contractor was changed on March 1, 1976.
