#NYPD chief Banks Had Two Words for KKK Ray Kelly and Broken Windows Bratton "Yes Sir"







#NYPD chief Banks Had Two Words for KKK Ray Kelly and Broken Windows Bratton "Yes Sir"



Chief Banks was KKK Ray's yes man and also Banks' office made the call to arrest Eric Garner. Ask yourself under Bratton how many Black teens arrested, how many Black Men died while being arrested....I fear de Blasio and his wife making another HUGE mistake if they go with Banks.  Banks has made Pineiro and Bratton look bad but Banks still looks bad if you look at his yes man role for KKK Ray and Bratton up until now!  I am already finding searches checking out Scott Stringer for mayor and there is NO WAY I am voting for Scott Stringer but unless de Blasio does something about my case I guarantee I won't be voting for de Blasio and if he puts Banks in to continue KKK Ray's policies no thank you.  Banks said nothing bout Bratton's broken windows accept yes sir.

John Liu's Press Release Calling for A Criminal Investigation on 911 ECTP Removed by Scott Stringer Posted on Scribd by QueensCrap



I exclusively reported come Jan 2014 Scott Stringer who is not qualified to be NYC gov comptroller and got there via back room deals in my opinion did in fact remove this press release immediately and put up faux photos of Stringer with People of Color like he was already running a fake pr campaign to be mayor. I allege he did this because he wants Bloomberg and pals like George Artz (lobbyist for HP) backing to become mayor another job he isn't qualified for.


Note HP also had top officials

 on the NY Pension Board.

By removing the press release was Stringer protecting HP, Mike Bloomberg, whom ever appointed HP officials to the NY Pension board, Cy Vance and how many other political players..?

Everyone who called for HP to be terminated is not longer working for NYC Gov and I was a victim of savage violence and threatened by the NYPD and I have audio that sounds like an ADA threatening me -- the goal to shut me and silence me?

Mr. Arzt’s was paid for representation of Hewlett-Packard in 2007 and 2008, around the time or immediately after the city’s Department of Information Technology & Telecommunications “recommended rebidding the main contract for system integration services with” Hewlett-Packard, a recommendation which “was not followed,” according to a 2014 report about ECTP issued by the city’s new Comptroller, Scott Stringer.  According to online city lobbying records, Mr. Arzt was paid by Hewlett-Packard to lobby former Deputy Mayor Ed Sklyer, the Bloomberg administration official who vocally defended the ECTP cost overruns.






I write about 911 Tech corruption and the original contractor IXP who I believe was honorable and was creatively booted off so HP could be placed in charge but than IXP was allowed to come back as a sub-contractor since HP had no 911 tech experience.

The key HP figure who I allege was over billing is already back with a new contract reaping another company and DOITT knows it!!!!!

Liu: 911 Upgrade Cost City Millions


Audit Finds Negligence; Asks D.A. To Probe
According to an audit released last Wednesday, May 30, by City Comptroller John C. Liu, the contractorselected to streamline the city’s vital 911 Unified Call Taking (UCT) system was unqualified and so poorly monitored that it wasable to overbill taxpayers by as much as $163 million.
Because of the severity of the findings and potential for fraud in both the vendor selection and billing processes, Liu has referred the matter to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office for further review.
This follows a previous audit released by Liu in March that found the Emergency Communications Transformation Program (ECTP) had only one component up and running, was seven years behind schedule, and a billion dollars over budget.
Liu said the audit found that severe mismanagement by the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DoITT) has resulted in the city taxpayers not getting what they paid for. In fact, the systems integration portion of the much needed 911 upgrade could cost an additional $362 million, with taxpayers entitled to as much as $163 million in restitution.
“We have long feared that City- Time was not an isolated incident, and unfortunately what we have learned today is that our fear has become a reality,” Liu said last Wednesday. “With one month to go before the city’s budget is ratified, and with devastating cuts on the table, taxpayers should be outraged at the fleecing that transpired under City Hall’s watch.”
The audit uncovered a lengthy se- ries of missteps, starting with the selection of an unqualified company as lead contractor and continuing throughout the life of the ongoing project.
Some of the findings include:
• Hewlett Packard (HP) was unqualified because it failed to meet DoITT’s minimum technical requirements for selection and should have not been hired as lead contractor on the project, calling into question the solicitation process and resulting in delays and cost overruns;
• DoITT allowed HP to drastically mark up subcontractor bills resulting in questionable billing;
• Project consultants were unqualified and billed at higher rates than allowed;
• Despite numerous failures and unsatisfactory reviews, City Hall failed to assess any damages against HP, in accordance with the contract.
“As the end users of the info pro- duced by the UCT, fire officers have known right from the beginning that the system did not function,” said Uniformed Fire Officers Association President Al Hagan. “Fire officers refer to UCT as ‘U Can’t Tell’ because we never knew whether the information we were getting was accurate. Now, thanks to the diligent work of the comptroller’s office, we know we were overcharged for a shoddy system."
Audit findings
In 2004, the city received two proposals from iXP Corporation and Hewlett Packard for the systems integration portion of ECTP. iXP passed the test for the required technical standard and was selected. However, the company unexpectedly withdrew its proposal and rather than re-soliciting the contract, the DoITT selected HP, which had twice failed to meet the minimum technical score to manage and complete the project.
In addition, iXP was hired by HP as a subcontractor on the project, which raised suspicion.
The DoITT justified awarding the contract to HP by stating that the company had stellar recommendations from the NYPD and the US Air Force, and was at the time contracted to perform CAD system upgrades at NYPD. Furthermore, DoITT stated that re-soliciting the contract would delay the important project. Both explanations have proven hollow.
In fact, DoITT had no record of NYPD or Air Force recommendations. Furthermore, as far back as 2004—before the project was solicited— the NYPD gave HP an unsatisfactory review on the quality and timeliness of HP’s performance in a VENDEX performance evaluation.
It also turns out that HP paid the NYPD a $33 million settlement in 2008 for failing to deliver the very CAD system that served in part as justification for their selection on ECTP.
Finally, DoITT stated that it selected HP, instead of soliciting additional applicants, in order to avoid delays. Nevertheless, the ECTP project is seven years behind schedule, incomplete, and $1 billion over budget, according to Liu’s March audit.
HP was selected as lead vendor to complete three major components of the ECTP system integration, under a contract that was not to exceed $380 million. Although HP failed to deliver two of the three components (a unified-CAD and PSAC 2), the estimated cost for the completion of PSAC 1 is $346 million.
In addition, the city has had to engage a second vendor, Northrop Grumman, to complete what HP has failed to do, driving the systems integration costs to $632 million.
There is no disputing the fact that HP has failed to deliver what they were contracted for, Liu said. This failure is due to a lack of oversight on behalf of the city and has resulted in another IT project drastically increasing in cost.
Despite documented dissatisfaction with HP’s failure to deliver on the ECTP project, the comptroller noted, DoITT paid the company $113 million during the first three years of the contract. City Hall refused to heed warnings from high-level agency commissioners and made no effort to recoup expended funds after HP was found to be unsatisfactory, in accordance with the contract.
In 2007, the then-DoITT commissioner, in conjunction with NYPD and FDNY officials, wrote to the then-deputy mayor and outlined numerous problems with HP and recommended termination. No action was taken.
In 2008, DoITT stated HP “needs improvement” or was “unsatisfactory” in response to all 20 questions on a VENDEX performance evaluation. And in 2009, a “lessons learned” report by the quality assurance monitor found the same issues within the same time frame.
In the face of the failures by HP, Liu noted, the city failed to assess damages to the company, adding that City Hall stood idly by and took no action.
The DoITT and HP did not properly ensure that project consultants were qualified for their titles, that hours were billed appropriately and accurately, and that timesheets were approved in a timely manner. As a result DoITT should move to recoup as much as $50 million for questionable timesheets (in addition to the aforementioned $113 million).
Billing errors included:
• Thirteen consultants were overpaid $1.5 million during the audit period. HP billed eight consultants at a higher paying title than they were working at and an additional five consultants were not qualified for their titles. Auditors were unable to determine if an additional 71 consultants were qualified and paid appropriately
• Three consultants who were qualified to be administrative staff were billed as Project Managers or Project Analysts (Engineers) for $396,000.
• HP billed the city at a rate of $192 per hour for non-allowable tasks such as opening the door for visitors and handling restroom garbage.
• Consultants submitted electronic timesheets indicating work was reported prior to actually performing the work, sometimes as far as a month ahead.
Liu said that the DoITT’s poor management of HP and heavy reliance on subcontractors drove up costs and allowed the lead vendor to take advantage of taxpayers. For example:
• HP was allowed to bill DoITT for the cost of leasing a management office, including payments for rent, City taxes, coffee, paper, postage, and office supplies
• DoITT never reduced the contract amount when it was clear that HP could not finish all three components of the project
• DoITT allowed HP to bill between nine and 195 percent mark ups for subcontracted services and allowed HP to change the payment structure on eight contract components from deliverable (paid upon completion) to time and material (hourly), thus incentivizing additional billing delays
The audit also noted that there were lengthy delays in timesheet approval by HP, ranging from two to 885 days and that more than half waited two months or more for approval. As a result of egregious timesheet errors HP may have overbilled the city as much as $106 million. Of this $106 million, $56 million is included in the previously mentioned $113 million. The remaining $50 million is for work billed after 2008.
As a result of the audit, Liu’s office made 11 recommendations to DoITT, of which the agency agreed to four.
Liu credited Deputy Comptroller for Audits Tina Kim and her team for their hard work on the report, which can be found online atwww.comptroller.nyc.gov/bureaus/a udit/audits_ 2012/06-30-12_ FM11- 107A.shtm
The ECTP was initiated in 2004 to transform and consolidate the city‘s 911 Emergency Dispatch System. The objective of the ECTP is to centralize and integrate the call-taking and dispatch operations between the NYPD and FDNY, including its Emergency Medical Dispatch division, into two fully integrated Public Safety Answering Centers (PSAC 1 and PSAC 2) equipped with state-ofthe art hardware and software communications systems.
On Apr. 1, 2005, the DoITT contracted with Hewlett-Packard Compan as system integrator for the ECTP. The contract includes, but is not limited to, development for PSAC facilities, organizational transformation of the call-taking process, application integration for all Computer Aided Dispatch systems and the Automated Vehicle Location system, and the communication infrastructure supporting the ECTP.
Liu has put strict payment requirements in place for the city’s second systems integration contract to complete this important project to ensure that this is not repeated.
In March, Liu announced audit findings on the overall project management of ECTP by DoITT. This report addresses a more detailed facet of that management, DoITT’s contract with HP. The March audit can be found at www.comptroller. nyc.gov/press/2012_ releases/pr12- 03-026.shtm
On May 14, a delegation of Congressional representatives sent a letter to the Comptroller General of the United States requesting an investigation into Mayor Bloomberg’s alleged lack of oversight of spending on private contractors funded by the City of New York with help from federal funds.




City's 911 Call System Redo Is a $2B Bungle: Audit

City's 911 Call System Redo Is a $2B Bungle: Audit

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

The Bloomberg administration's re-design of the city's 911 emergency call system is $1 billion over-budget and seven years behind schedule, according to a comprehensive audit of the project by City Comptroller John Liu.
The system re-design and planned new call centers were supposed to be completed by 2008 at a cost of $1.3 billion. Liu told WNYC on Wednesday that the price tag is closer to $2.3 billion with a 2015 completion date — two years after Mayor Michael Bloomberg leaves office.

“Years of mismanagement have led to this incredibly enormous budget overrun, and to date, it is still not fully operational,” Liu told WNYC on Wednesday.

Concerns about the effectiveness of the city's 911 system stem from September 11, 2001, when the system was overwhelmed with callers not being able to get through or getting inaccurate information. The system's poor performance during the August 2003 blackout prompted Bloomberg to create a panel to investigate how emergency communications could be improved.

By 2004, the Bloomberg administration had a blueprint for a major system upgrade which was rolled out with much fanfare as the Emergency Communications Transformation Program (ECTP).
It called for the integration of the city's separate police, fire and ambulance  emergency dispatch systems as well as the creation of two 911 call centers — one based at the City's Metrotech facility in Brooklyn and a second back-up call center in the Bronx.

Liu's audit found that as early as 2007 the Bloomberg administration disregarded an internal memo from the city's Department of Information Technology, which called for the contracts to be re-bid and raised serious questions about how the project was being handled.

The comptroller's audit identified a lack of oversight and independent quality assurance for ECTP's outsourced IT contracts. Similar issues had been previously flagged in reviews of the Bloomberg administration's CityTime payroll system re-design, which resulted in a $600 million, multi-layered fraud prosecution.
The comptroller says the city office responsible for keeping day to day tabs on 911 re-design and makeover is under-staffed and there has been a rapid turn-over of top managers – including the unexpected departures of 911 redo boss Skip Funk and Deputy Mayor for Operations Stephen Goldsmith.

Liu told WNYC in an interview that both CityTime and the 911 re-design suffered from the outsourcing of contract oversight.

"We're also highly recommending that the city get away from using another set of consultants to oversee the first set of consultants, but rather use city managers to keep on top of consultants in general," Liu said.

The current Deputy Mayor for Operations, Cas Hollaway, said the Bloomberg administration had "long ago" been aware of the issues raised by Liu and has "taken the measures necessary to address them."

In a statement, Hollaway wrote that "the Mayor established the Office of Citywide Emergency Communications in 2010 to strengthen the governance of the program, and we have filled numerous vacancies."

As for Liu's concern the project lacks independent oversight Holloway said in a statement the City "recently entered into a contract with NASA—after extensive negotiations—to ensure appropriate independent verification and validation on the project."
Sources inside the 911 system workforce tell WNYC there is considerable concern that even after the project is completed it will still be vulnerable to a system meltdown in the event of a high volume call event.
