Greater examination by private and public (ARRA-related) of this One Economy Corporation financials & capacity is greatly needed given the increasing number of lay offs of employees tasked with delivering on the 26+ million ARRA grant, which is counter to the intent of the job creation goals of ARRA. Most notable is the diversion of current and previous grant funds for other purposes and lack of transparency.
