  • WAP way behind in goals

    • Production

    • Expenditures

    • Jobs

Concerns from report data14 l.jpg
Concerns from Report Data

  • WAP still called poster child for ARRA but many view ARRA WAP as failing

  • Incredible political pressure to get to 30,000 houses/month with corresponding expenditures and jobs

  • Analysis of report data leads to some pretty bizarre conclusions (cost per job created, particularly if you factor out Ohio)

Doe response l.jpg
DOE Response

  • Operation Green Light - Upper Management and Staff visiting 14 states where they believe there are major concerns

  • Pressure from outside sources and from within DOE to examine network capabilities

  • Can WAP network succeed in ARRA and be a gateway to other green economy initiatives?

Have the problems been resolved17 l.jpg
