The agency that receives millions of dollars to run job training and employment programs for North Central Florida is facing sanctions from the state.

A letter from the state circulated among Alachua County Commissioners Thursday night, which listed the charges issued against

. In the letter, the state claimed the CareerSource NCFL operated with a lack of transparency and cooperation in accounting for its spending.

The state agency that funnels federal money to CareerSource said its board has repeatedly resisted state oversight and has not properly managed money spent by the company that runs its programs.

That company has been called a "public consulting group," which gets nearly $2 million a year.

The letter imposed immediate sanctions on CareerSource, so the agency will only receive reimbursement from the state to pay for expenses, but it will not be awarded money in advance.
