Work Incentives Planning And Assistance

From a recent report by Social Security's Office of Inspector General (OIG):
From 2006 through 2010, SSA awarded about $93 million in grant funds to 103 grantees to provide work incentives planning and assistance[WIPA] to Disability Insurance and/or Supplemental Security Income beneficiaries. However, the Agency was still unable to show employment outcomes for beneficiaries receiving WIPA services because of the challenges with the quality and accuracy of the beneficiary data collected and reported by WIPA grantees. In addition, SSA did not clearly outline specific performance measurements that defined the level of performance the WIPA grantees were to achieve.
I have seen no evidence on the ground of anything accomplished by these WIPA grantees. Is anyone familiar with anything whatsoever accomplished by these WIPA grantees?

    There have been no results, and the program should be canned.
