Colorado Economic Recovery and Accountability

Web Update - CDLE Letter to Accountability Board

Donald J. Mares, executive director of the state Department of Labor and Employment, sent a letter today to the Colorado Economic Recovery and Accountability Board notifying the members of an error made in the distribution of certain workforce funds through the Recovery Act. The letter explains that the state distributed funds using employment data from calendar year 2008, and the federal government wanted them to use data from an older time period. That resulted in a difference of payment of $452,811 out of $22,846,182. The issue has been resolved.
