FYI: Contractors don't have to take an oath like a city employee does -- why are we outsourcing to over paid consultants -- why not direct hires?
How is it that Gartner is hired for Quality Assurance in nearly every City Agency and paid tens of millions of taxpayer money to monitor things and we end up with results like the City Time fiasco? Public Records show that these consultants are paid almost $300 an hour to make sure City Agencies are efficient or.... maybe inefficient as I am learning. Isn't it a bit more than ironic that all ofthis fraud occurs under their watch while the investment firm Silver Lake, who owns a majority of Gartner, and again which is run by Bloomberg’s fellow Harvard MBA friend, racks in the duckets for the failure. Hutchins also petitioned City Hall for Mike Bloomberg’s third term in an Open Letter published in the Daily News. I suppose I would be petitioning City Hall for Bloombuck's third term if all of my companies that I purchased could bilk the City during it and create a big failure that I get paid millions for so long as the failure continues. Why not in this regime? What a joke!!! Read the link yourselves: http://www.citylimits.org/images_pdfs/pdfs/Open%20Letter%20to%20Mayor%20Bloomberg.pdf
