The cover-ups at City Hall starting with 911 will come back to haunt the Feds, Preet Bharara, Cy Vance, the NYPD and Internal Affairs and Bloomberg Team Bloomberg including Ray Kelly.

Re: United States v. Mazer, et al., S2 11 Cr. 121-07 (GBD)
Dear Judge Daniels:
Attached to this letter, we submit two recent New York City audits of large IT projects, which demonstrate that the government's claim that the City was defrauded by SAIC's markups is inconsistent with other large IT service contracts that, like SAIC's, did not limit contractor's markups or require the contractor pass any savings on to the City that it gained by having subcontractors perform work on the contract. The first is a September 2013 audit of Accenture's Access NYC Contract with the City. Under the Accenture contract, Accenture "added a significant imputed mark-up on services provided by its subcontractors with a mark-up rate as high as 178 percent." For the contract period, Accenture alone (without consideration of any additional markup added by its subcontractor) had an "average mark-up rate of nearly 58 percent" and during the year 2012 there was an "average mark-up of 84 percent." The second is
Honorable George B. Daniels April 25, 2014
a May 2012 audit of Hewlett Packard's Emergency Communications Transformation Program (911) Contract with the City. The Audit stated that "HP relied heavily on its subcontractors to fulfill the contracted services. Of 528 consultants who worked on this contract, 413 were hired by subcontractors to provide services to the City." For the contract period, "HP charged a mark- up ranging from 9 percent to 195 percent." The total amount of mark-up paid was 54 percent.
While the conclusion of these audits was that the City could have done better in its negotiations by limiting markups the contractors (Accenture and HP) charged for subcontractor work performed, there was no indication that the markups were an indication of fraud. On the CityTime contract, SAIC's average mark-up from the Technodyne subcontractor rate (30.13%), according to GX 8010-1, was substantially less than both Accenture's and HP's mark-ups on subcontractor rates. Of course, if we were to calculate the markup of what the actual consultants were paid, the markup for consultants from Technodyne as well as HP's and Accenture's subcontractors would be substantially higher than these averages.

I agreed to false arrest twice for having Dr Andrew Fagelman's violent lying receptionist office manager repeatedly violate my patient rights before I started filming when I could not get help and her behavior unbelievable kind of like SAIC's, HP etc.
