MWC was praised in a recently released national research report conducted by the Mathematica Policy Research
(Mathematica) for the US Department of Labor (DOL). In “Insights from the Recovery Act LMI [Labor Market Information] Grants,” Mathematica found MWC’s role as the administrative entity and fiscal intermediary of the MARC Green Consortium (MARC) pivotal to the consortium's success. According to the research report, Maryland, DC and Virginia all “identified the MWC and the fiscal organization of the project as a “major strength” that “improved overall efficiency.”’ Click here for a link to the reports and our press release. 

Veteran (Annapolis) Capital Gazette Reporter Shantee Woodards spoke with Andy yesterday about Governor O'Malley's plans to include for workforce training and infrastructure project jobs in the FY2014 budget. In addition to jobs created through capital projects, the budget will invest $2.5 million in a new Employment Advancement Right Now (EARN) program.

From the Capital Gazette article: 
Maryland Workforce Corp. CEO Andy Moser said he was pleased to learn about the new jobs and the EARN program. There have been signs of improvement since the recession, but advancements like this are still needed, he
“There are some people out of work; it’s a competitive job market,” Moser said. "I think that we are moving in the right direction and it will be exciting to see how the whole recovery ends up transpiring over time.”

We recently learned that MWC was recognized as a “major strength” that “improved overall efficiency” and was a determining factor in the success of the MARC Green Consortium's Green LMI project. The comments appeared in the final draft of Mathematica’s national report regarding the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Green Labor Market Information (LMI) grants. We look forward to sharing the official report as soon as it becomes available.
We're currently meeting with Michele R. Mills, CPA, of Draper & McGinley, P.A. regarding our FY2012 audit. Since our inception in 2009, MWC has never had a finding in any of our audits and we expect this year to be no different. Our audits are performed in accordance with Generally Accepted Auditing Standards and Government Auditing Standards.

Our FY2011 audit, which was presented to our Governor-appointed Board of Directors in December 2011, received an "Unqualified" opinion on the financial statements. In this instance, being "unqualified" is a good thing.

Last month, the Maryland Workforce Corporation (MWC) proudly partnered with the Maryland Biotechnology Center (a division of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development), the Maryland Chamber of Commerce, the Maryland Association of Community Colleges, and the University System of Maryland to form the Maryland Bioscience Initiative (MBI) Consortium. The Consortium applied for $5 million in grant funds from the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration to help Maryland-based bioscience employers to identify, hire, train, retain, and advance workers. The proposal had the support of 20+ bioscience employers.
