The government of the Australian state of Victoria has discovered serious irregularities in its multi-million-dollar IT training program during an audit of federal funding. The audit found that at least 2,000 employers who had received federal and state grants for IT training had failed to follow government guidelines in setting up the programs. The investigation, which has been welcomed by the unions, follows the suspension earlier this year of the state's largest IT training company, Broadscope, for alleged irregularities in administering training programs.
