Any new 911 contractors coming in should have known they were building on a House of Cards because HP had no 911 experience but they wanted the contract and big bucks from NYC gov tax payer money an endless source of green as SAIC and HP can attest....
It was our lives and who cares just like Bloomberg Quinn Arzt support Rudin Condos not a Trauma Level 1 Hospital so Mark Carson's murder was their hate crime as well as Chris Quinn besides the gun shot to his head the delayed ambulance --- yes I exclusively reported my source standing there heard the NYPD supervisor call again asking where is the ambulance and than no hospital 2 blocks up....
Funny Gary Tilzer wasn't interested in CityTime and 911 when I started trying to tell him about it way back but here is a post of mine from 2012 talking about lobbyists as well as DOITT's role because surprise key players from DOITT left to become lobbyists.
I worked on this for a long time and at one time I admit I got confused and actually thought Agostino Cangemi and Gino Mencini where lobbyists for Deloitte and for HP but I was wrong about that but they and their pals were profiting along with so many as we were robbed historic amounts of money on 911 Tech corruption and CityTime under Bloomberg and some of this has Rudy roots and Rudy's guy's profiting.
Nice to see over a year later Gary Tilzer finally paying some attention....
EMS software flat lining in 2012 as reported only by The NY Post....not major news and too date
I can't get anyone to investigate the fact Mark Carson's ambulance delayed by a few minutes like
Ariel Russos? I testified at City Hall and I was the only one to demand a criminal investigation in to 911 based on John Liu's audit and an investigation in to Mark Carson's ambulance ride.
Now Bloomberg and his heinous puppet Cas Holloway admit Liu's audit has merit but remain united with Cy Vance another puppet that there is no criminal investigation needed and George Arzt would agree because he profited.
Is Mike Bloomberg and George Azrt who appointed HP to the NY Pensions and why HP was given 911 tech contract when they have no 911 experience?
Dead Girl 911 Lobbying
Lobbyist Kept Representing Contractors for the 911 System No Matter How Poorly They Were Performing
On June 3 in 2012, Comptroller John Liu released an audit of the system 911 system from 2005 to 2008 smashing the city’s upgrade — accusing contractor Hewlett-Packard of up to $163 million in possibly fraudulent overcharges. It is not clear why the city hired HP in 2005. They have never designed a 911 system and they failed in 2002 to upgrade the same system. The NYPD signed a 47 million contract with Hewlett-Packard for such technology in 2002. The company failed to supply the system, and returned more than $30 million in a settlement. In 2005 the city again hired HP to oversee a new 911 center in Brooklyn, a unified dispatch system and a backup 911 center in the Bronx — at cost of $380 million. The cost of the upgrade is now expected to be $2 billion. In 2008 because of the delays and cost overruns the city replaced Hewlett-Packard as the lead contractor with Alabama-based Intergraph Corp. (ICAD). In 2007 when it became know the city was disappointed by HP’s performance the company hired George Artz in 2007 to lobby city hall ($15.000).
Even though the press says HP was replaced on the 911 project John Liu’s report said that HP was still working on the project and got paid over $300 million in 2012 for their work. In 2010 thru 2011 when the city council was going after problems in the 911 system, HP hired Kasirer Consulting LLC and paid them over $200,000 to lobby city hall for the company. Mercury Public Affairs public affairs have been working on the project for Intergraph Corp since 2007. Before Intergraph hired Sal Salamone as a lobbyist in 2006 to 2008 ($100,000) Salamone worked for the city on the Citytime project until he was let go after the corruption and cost overruns become know on that project, in which Liz Holtzman was one of the lobbyists that cashed in. It had to get through the fog surrounding the 911 contracts. Last month Bloomberg lauded Comptroller 911 audit he once called 'stupid.’ He even said there was nothing wrong with the Hewlett-Packard contract and the city paid those most of the money they requested. The mayor changed him mind on Comptroller budget to stop a federal audit requested by DC 37’s Lillian Roberts. According to this report, generated moments ago from the New York City Campaign Finance Board Web site, Mr. Arzt has contributed $90,500 in political donations to municipal candidates since 1993. Arzt is working for comptroller candidate Stringer, BP candidate Katz, DA Hynes. Mercury Public Affairs Jonathan Greenspun is working for BP Peter Vallone, council candidates Paul Vallone,
