  8. YOU ARE HERE ☞ Working as Contractor for the Public Sector While Defrauding and Stealing From Staff

Summary: Contractors may seem glowingly popular at the Linux Foundation; but what does contracting mean for corporate liability?

WHEN this series started 6 months ago we promised not to name clients, even though most of them are listed and shown publicly in the company's official Web site.

Seeing that the British authorities (or "Crown") are unwilling to hold Sirius accountable for pension fraud, we thought it would be worth showing what's already public anyway. Here are some government clients of Sirius:

Cabinet Office and Sirius Open Source

CESG and Sirius Open Source

Gatwick, FSA, and Sirius Open Source

Digital Office, GLA, and Sirius Open Source

Government clients of Sirius Open Source

Various Sirius Open Source clients

ERA, Europol, and Sirius Open Source

All the above is public anyway. And I've blurred out anything that's not a public institution. Another page:

Parliamentary Ombudsman

There are many more that the company does not publicly name, including Parliamentary Ombudsman, Home Office, and more recently Acas (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service). There are several more that are named, e.g. Bristol City Council. Some are omitted from the carousel, but appear in another page because almost nobody is left in the company who knows how to properly maintain its Drupal Web site e.g. myself or the Support Manager. Everyone is rapidly leaving and the replacement rate is near 0-to-1.

If we are going to expose our regime too, seeing that it does not want to look into very obvious evidence of fraud, it helps to provide evidence of the company's ties to the government. It is very much possible that later this month it will implicate London's municipality because it's directly connected to the cops who aren't investigating the matter and won't even look into reports of crime. We don't think it's a coincidence. They probably just don't that would be fun! Do they really want to participate in a blunder that embarrasses their sponsor? It's not just any municipality; I worked on their systems for ages and I also have lots to prove just how much I worked for them while my boss defrauded me and my colleagues.

Stay tuned. We have lots left to show. Sans a D-Notice, maybe this will even hit the mainstream media.
