This is for people following my YouTube and blog postings on CityTime, the tax payers Titanic or what to know about a NYC technology scandal at City Hall that for far too long those making the big bucks off of CityTimes flaws did their bet to keep quiet like Sleeping Beauty but more and more people are learning about this economic disaster.
If you visit the Crain's piece I am giving you a link to SAIC and you can read what that stands for and how SAIC is using Crain's to defend it's reputation. CityTime was suppose to save the city money by using technology from hand prints to using computers to sign in and instead it seems like a scam to make consultants even richer. There are over 200 consultants and some are getting close to half a million and some a million but CityTime is about to bust the 1 billion dollar mark and CityTime is very flawed....flawed is a kind word for hunk of junk, a black hole sucking tax payers money, a scam or sham....read on....

You can find the first blog posting that goes in to the CityTime and SAIC in the text portion of this YouTube link above.
I give you a link to this woman Ali Winston's article that gets in to SAIC and Iraq and even the FBI.
Check it out.
Go to my main blog and search under CityTime to find all my postings....www.suzannahbtroy.blogspot.com
Juan Gonzalez's work covering CityTime has been outstanding and indepth so you must check out Ali Winston's piece from City Limits that connects the dots with SAIC to federal level scandals and Gonzalez's series that is focused here in NYC. Juan Gonzelez's series of pieces exposing CityTime are all on The New York Daily News website are a must read.
Renewal is this Sept. and I am one of many that feels rather than renew we need an investigation.
Even better would be a full refund of tax payers money which is moving towards the billion dollar mark for a massively flawed system and this article says Joel Bondy is laying low.
I would like to know how much he earns as a city employee vs. a consultant or what....? What is his role with CityTime and NYC gov fully explained along with other consultants especially anyone that has ties to NYC gov and or Bloomberg and friends. I don't have a press pass and I am finding NYC gov is not eager to answer questions and or be transparent. Maybe a press pass would help....?
But SAIC has also had high-profile problems over the years. In the early 1990s, the company and six of its employees pleaded guilty to making false statements in their handling of work at EPA Superfund sites. In 2004, the Pentagon's inspector general faulted SAIC's performance on a contract to rebuild the Iraqi media. The following year, the FBI blamed SAIC for botching the development of the bureau's new "Trilogy" information management system (although the Justice Department inspector general said the FBI deserved much of the blame). And the company was still wrangling into 2007 with the Greek government over whether SAIC deserved full payment for a security system it developed for the 2004 Athens Olympics.
