Audit says Iowa jobs office didn't track spending

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A state audit alleges Iowa Workforce Development failed to track spending for a computer system that handled unemployment insurance taxes.

In a report, state auditors say they couldn't determine the cost of the nine-year project because the agency's budgets were vague and rules on competitive bidding weren't followed, among other problems.

Workforce Development officials say they spent about $12 million on the project, but auditors couldn't verify the figure.
