The Government Accountability Office released its report Labor’s Green Jobs Efforts Highlight Challenges of Targeted Training Programs for Emerging Industries on July 22, stating that the outcome of some Labor Department green jobs programs, representing some $500 million of stimulus funding, remains uncertain. Data on the final outcomes of about 40 percent of grantees was still not available by the end of 2013. However, grantees that have final outcome data available have reported training slightly more individuals than originally projected, yet job placements were only 55 percent of the target. The report noted that training-related job placement rates remain unknown because the Labor’s Office of Inspector General found the available data to be too unreliable.
