An MTA board will be asked next week to hire the company behind CityTime, a city payroll and timekeeping project that's been plagued with delays and a ballooning budget.
A Metropolitan Transportation Authority committee will vote Monday on a staff-recommended $118 million contract for a new radio communications system from Science Applications International Corp, the main contractor for CityTime.
Originally, CityTime was estimated to cost $63 million, but costs have grown more than tenfold over a decade or so.
Costs skyrocketed ten times what you initially told us the project would cost?
Let's hire you for other stuff!
Hell, the only difference between $63 million and $630 million is a zero, give or take.
Can't wait to see what the $118 million dollar contract the MTA hands these crooks costs when all is said and done.

I wonder who at City Time knows who at City Hall?
