The expenditure exerted by the Ministry of Labor and Social Prevention (STPS) in its flagship program Young People Building the Future, in 2021 left unclarified resources for 78 million 815 thousand 935 pesos, according to the control of the Superior Audit of the Federation ( ASF).
In the second installment of the 2021 Public Account report, it detected deficiencies in the operation of that program, including duplications, and that it did not prove that 87,777 people with medical services granted by the IMSS corresponded to beneficiaries, since they were not located in the standard
Of this total, the ASF took a sample of 70 young people who were granted health insurance without being on the registry. 41,000 pesos were paid for them, and it was found that out of 45, quotas were delivered to the IMSS and they received training; however, they did not receive scholarship payments
without justifying the reason.
The irregularities also include payments of 19,332,700 pesos to 1,160 beneficiaries who were also part of another program, Youth Writing the Future.
In the same way, 2,983,500 pesos were paid to 284 beneficiaries who at the same time were located as scholarship holders of the Elisa Acuña Scholarship program, aimed at graduates and teachers of public higher education institutions.
Meanwhile, another 16 beneficiaries, who were paid 284,500 pesos, also identified themselves as servants of the nation in fiscal year 2021.
Likewise, the STPS provided support for 10 million 917 thousand 200 pesos to 703 recipients who had a job in public agencies and 45 million 91 thousand 200 pesos more to 2 thousand 692 who worked in private companies, even when they were part of the training plan.
Another 16 were paid 206,900 pesos, which were also found as tutors in the workplace database during the same training period.
The ASF determined 14 observations, of which four were resolved by the STPS, although three promotions of sanctioning administrative responsibility and nine recommendations were generated.
