Seems corporate greed by Hewlett Packard may be defrauding NYC out of about $163 million. From a recent email from NYC Comptroller John Liu:
To those who say there's no money: there's plenty due to the City. That is, of course, if you know where to look and have the will to go after it.
Last week, Comptroller Liu uncovered $345 million that should be recaptured from the City's generous Times Square giveaway. This week, it's $163 million that should be recouped from "CityTime II", another botched, runaway consultant contract already over-budget.
Doing business with the City of New York is a privilege, not a lifetime guarantee. Although City Hall can't turn back the clock and undo the gross mismanagement, it must pursue the rightful refunds for our taxpayers.
