Allegations were made that certain contractors appeared to be used extensively to provide training in the Indian employment and training programs authorized by the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA). Four sponsors analyzed accounted for 40 percent of the Indian program funds expended for classroom training in fiscal year 1977. Three of the Indian sponsors generally awarded small contracts to a diverse group of training organizations primarily for the provision of classroom and on-the-job training. The fourth sponsor awarded primarily large contracts also to a diverse group of organizations. Although some sponsors awarded several small contracts to the same organization, the total amount paid under such multiple contracts was not significant. No pattern was noted of the same contractor being used by several sponsors and involving substantial funding.
