This initiative was for the period 2007 to more than $ 214 million to benefit some 240,000 people living in poverty or indigence. It aims to promote education, health coverage and facilitate job seeking adults through a system of compensations.

The Audit of Buenos Aires could verify on a sample of 50 cases, only 7% of households with school-age children had presented certificates of schooling, even though the law 1878-1805 requires, in consideration of the plan in education, meeting attendance and retention of children in school, corroborating through quarterly certificates.

The report also elaborated on data from 2007 and approved this year, adding that "certificates of health controls stipulated not found" or the vaccination of children and adolescents, and that did not have certificates of "92 % of older people, made up of people over 18, pregnant women, people with disabilities or malnutrition.

Deficiencies in Providing Subsidies
The audit work explains that irregularities were also detected in the allocation of subsidies. It was based on a sample of 103 households enrolled in the program in December 2007 and its subsequent review in the National Register of Beneficiaries of Social Programs Families (RUB).

The AGCBA noted that "two homes were described erroneously as non-poor", although seven of them were "below the poverty line" and that the subsidy declined to four families for residing outside the city, "however having presented the certificate of residence in Capital ".

In turn, the sample revealed that some families received the category of 'beneficiary' although "exceeded the poverty line," higher income "by 8 and 39%." Furthermore, "there was a member of the program who, at the same time was head of benefit to another home."

Five other cases have "differences between the number of members set forth in the registration and observed from the RUB". The report clarifies that this situation warrants the cancelling or the suspension of the subsidy, but also adds that "any action by the program was not recorded."

While the Audit of the City notes that the program represents an important advance in terms of inclusion, it determined to have weaknesses on "applicants left out of registration, registered poorly evaluated and lack of coordination in the areas of education and health."
