Reporting Instances of Suspected Fraud, Program Abuse and Criminal Conduct
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), Title 20 CFR 683.620, requires that information and complaints involving criminal fraud, waste, abuse or other criminal activity must be reported immediately through DOL’s Incident Reporting System to the OIG with a copy simultaneously provided to the Employment and Training Administration (ETA). Complaints of a noncriminal nature, such as mismanagement and gross waste of funds, may also be reported through DOL’s Incident Reporting System.
This section provides information and procedures for reporting incidents including, but not limited to, criminal fraud, abuse, or other criminal activity and noncriminal complaints, such as waste of funds, to the Workforce Director in the Office of Workforce Opportunity, with the NH Department of Business and Economic Affairs (OWO) and the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Office of Inspector General (OIG).
All subrecipients that receive WIOA funding shall promptly report to the OWO and OIG, all allegations of WIOA-related fraud, abuse and other criminal activity. All subrecipient contractors that receive WIOA funding from New Hampshire’s Workforce Innovation Board (SWIB) must establish, document, and implement procedures to notify the WIOA Director in the Office of Workforce Opportunity, immediately of any suspected or proven fraud, abuse, or other criminal activity involving WIOA-funded activities.
