Kelly 247: Serco’s Asymmetric Novichok Toyshop, Boeing Trump Tower Target, SES ConAir Threat
General John F. Kelly
White House Chief of Staff
Washington, D.C. 20528
Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger
April 6, 2018
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 247 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on the late Victor Rothschild’s colleagues at Serco‘s investment banker N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd. who apparently tasked Nicholas and Rupert Soames, two of Winston Churchill’s grandsons, with transferring custody of ‘Churchill’s Toyshop’ – a British weapon research and development organisation of WWII – onto the federal bridge certification authority (FBCA) network so that key holders could engage in asymmetric warfare on the United States with weapons of mass destruction: for example, with anthrax bacilli or Novichok nerve agents from Porton Down or Northwestern University in attacks allegedly synchronized and coordinated by Serco director Dr. Pamela Drew through Boeing Phantom Works and the Boeing Company’s “Encryption for asymmetric data links US7023996B2 Priority date 2001-05-04.”
McConnell claims that the Soames Brothers established an online register of improvised patented devices (IPDs?) which could be licensed from an online Churchill’s Toyshop through the offices of Northern Trust, where Serco’s Alien Property Custodian in Chicago allegedly allowed Serco agents to target various iconic buildings including Trump Tower in New York on 9/11 before finally selecting weapons for the drone attacks on WTC 1 & 2 and demolition of WTC 1, 2 & 7.
McConnell claims that the Soames Brothers are using Mendenhall’s Baby or pedophile oath rituals to blackmail members of the U.S. Senior Executive Service (SES) including McConnell’s sister Kristine Marcy and further claims that Serco has placed ConAir SWAT teams in the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency to execute asymmetric warfare missions per examples below:
1. SES Conair’s Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928A with expert-system (i.e. including fuzzy logic, reinforcement learning, neural networks, artificial intelligence, etc.) algorithms – allegedly used to coordinate the murders of Princess Diana in Paris on August 31, 1997 and John O’Neill in the WTC complex on 9/11 and the Anthrax and Novichok attacks of 2001 and 2018;
2. Mysis International Banking Systems Limited (London, GB)’s System and method for leveraging location to enhance banking services US 9875478 – Allegedly used by Rupert Soames to track payments to Marcy’s ConAir SWAT teams and crisis actors for the Novichok attacks and to warn crisis actors via social networking websites or manual and/or automated check-in on such websites of the fates of prospective whistleblowers;
3. Howard Lutnick’s Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A – allegedly used by one of Serco‘s CAI private equity investors, the late General Alexander Haig; the Greek Life associates of Bill Clinton (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi; note his 25 years at N M Rothschild!) and, the recently-appointed Serco director Dr. Pamela Drew for body-count wagering on 9/11 through the federal bridge war rooms of Boeing Phantom Works in Boeing’s new Chicago HQ;
4. Lockheed Martin Corp’s Rocket-boosted guided hard target penetrator US6276277B1 Priority date 1999-04-22 .. 2001-08-21 Grant – allegedly used by Dr. Drew’s colleagues at Boeing Phantom Works with guidance and control units on delivery aircraft to steer bomb dive lines into WTC 1 & 2 on 9/11 and ignite explosives after target penetration;
5. Evonik Degussa GmbH’s Pyrogenically produced silicon dioxide powder and dispersion thereof US7537833B2 – allegedly used as a calling card for attacks on Serco enemies by ConAir SWAT teams equipped with CBRNE – Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive materials;
6. Northwestern University’s Metal organic frameworks for the catalytic detoxification of chemical warfare nerve agents US20170128761A1 – allegedly used to conceal stocks of powdered Novichok nerve agent for the recent attack on Sergei Skripal, a retired Russian military intelligence colonel who spied for Britain;
7. QinetiQ North America Inc’s Social Engineering Protection Appliance US9123027B2 – allegedly used by the UK’s National Crime Squad (NCS); SES alumnus Robert Mueller as head of the Special Counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections and Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps Captain and former SES-6 Director for FBI Criminal Investigative, Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Intelligence, to capture (steal) oath-taking images from Facebook and silence crisis actors and witnesses with video records of ConAir assassinations and Five Eyes pedophile rings.
McConnell reminds you that Buck Revell (warned by Serco‘s Rothschild bankers?) is reported to have pulled his son and daughter-in-law off Pan Am Flight 103 just before takeoff from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours on 21 December 1988 (a few weeks after McConnell told his sister how to drone ConAir aircraft) and saved his family from a SMEAC* Unabomb event over Lockerbie, Scotland at 19:02:50 with a body count of 270 = 243 passengers + 16 crew + 11 people on the ground.
With this 247th Kelly public briefing and references at Abel Danger, we ask you to pre-empt any possible further attacks through Churchill’s Toyshop on the federal bridge by stripping Serco and the Senior Executive Service out of any contracts with the United States and transferring custody of Boeing’s Encryption for asymmetric data links US7023996B2 from Serco bankers and shareholders to President Donald Trump and the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity.

“What 9/11 Wrought By Joseph Lelyveld SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE | SEPTEMBER 2011 The military had a name for it—“asymmetric warfare.” But until 9/11 hardly anyone imagined how surreal and coldblooded, how devastating, it could actually be: that 19 would-be suicides from distant parts, armed only with box-cutters, their leaders trained to fly but not land airliners, could bring the greatest military power the world had seen momentarily to its knees, with a loss of lives on that perfect late-summer morning surpassing that inflicted by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor. With video clips edited to remove scores of bodies flying through the air, what was shoved in our faces on our TV screens hundreds of times in the days that followed was still close enough to the full horror: the planes serenely cruising into the towers over and over again, the vile, bilious clouds of smoke and debris that repeatedly engulfed the buildings as they kept falling; the feeling of utter vulnerability, heightened by images of further wreckage and loss at the Pentagon and in a Pennsylvania field; all followed by rage.”

“An E-4B is a highly modified Boeing 747 equipped with advanced communications equipment, capable of carrying a crew of up to 112 people and intended as a flying military command posts. One was flying in restricted airspace over the White House on the morning of 9/11. This makes the Pentagon to know nothing of the plane all the more remarkable.
Official narrative As of 2007, the US military had not admitted to knowing anything about the large plane circling over Washington on 9/11. It may still deny knowledge.
Evidence Several witnesses testified to seeing a large white plane fly over the Whitehouse. At 9:54 a.m., correspondent John King, standing near the White House, reported that about ten minutes earlier (i.e. ~9:44 a.m.), there was “a white jet circling overhead.” Dan Verton, a former intelligence officer in the U.S. Marine Corps and former senior writer for Computerworld magazine, wrote that “on the morning of September 11, an E-4B was launched from “an airfield outside of the nation’s capital.” (He did not, however, state which specific base.) This plane was carrying “civilian and military officials,” and was going “to conduct a previously scheduled Defense Department exercise.” This exercise would involve “the use and testing of the aircraft’s various advanced technology and communications equipment.”
Significance The [plane appears to have been an E-4B, a National Airborne Operations Center (NAOC) plane, launched by the US military establishment. E-4Bs are highly modified Boeing 747s that act as flying military command posts. The plane was quite possibly participating in Global Guardian. Some[Who?] have suggested that the E4B may have served as the command center for the 9/11 operation.
The first edition of Peter Dale Scott 2014 book The American Deep State features a ghostly looking E4B over the Whitehouse to draw attention to the E4B which flew in restricted airspace on September 11th, 2001, and symbolize the subordination of “democratic” government to the military industrial complex.”
“A submarine patent is a patent whose issuance and publication are intentionally delayed by the applicant for a long time, which can be several years, or a decade. This strategy requires a patent system where, first, patent applications are not published, and, second, patent term is measured from grant date, not from priority or filing date. In the United States, patent applications filed before November 2000 were not published and remained secret until they were granted. Analogous to a submarine, therefore, submarine patents could stay “under water” for long periods until they “emerged” and surprised the relevant market. Persons or companies making use of submarine patents are sometimes referred to as patent pirates. The phrase is occasionally used more generally for any patent used in patent ambush.”
“Serco Processes 2 Millionth Patent Application for U.S. Patent and Trademark Office March 19, 2013 RESTON, VIRGINIA – March 18, 2013 – Serco Inc., a leading provider of professional, technology, and management services to the federal government, announced today that their Pre-Grant Publication (PGPubs) Classification Services team recently processed their 2 millionth patent application for the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO).

“British components in North Korean rockets, UN finds
Sanctions against the secretive state have not stopped it from sourcing parts from the UK, US and South Korea for its rockets
By Leo Byrne, NK News
1:01PM GMT 27 Mar 2014
North Korea built the Unha-3 rocket, one of the most important missiles in its arsenal, using British, American and South Korean components, United Nations experts have concluded.
The missile also contains off-the-shelf parts from Switzerland and China, as well as parts of Russian Scud missiles.
The majority of the parts, the UN said, did not contravene sanctions and their use “shows the ability of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to assemble complex systems with globally sourced components”.
The Unha-3, a three-stage missile which was first unveiled when it was used to launch a satellite into space in December 2012, is the closest that North Korea has come to developing a missile which can deliver a nuclear warhead to the west coast of America.
The analysis from the United Nations, released earlier this month, came just before North Korea launched two medium-range Rodong ballistic missiles into the sea on Tuesday. The UN security council is planning a closed door meeting on Thursday to discuss a response.”
“Salisbury’s Nerve Agent and The $70 M Pentagon Program at Porton Down
April 4, 2018
By Dilyana Gaytandzhieva
The Pentagon has spent at least $70 million on military experiments involving tests with deadly viruses and chemical agents at Porton Down -– the UK military laboratory near the city of Salisbury. The secretive biological and chemical research facility is located just 13 km from where on 4th March former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found slumped on a bench following an alleged Novichok nerve agent poisoning.
The Porton Down Lab is located just 13 km from the site where Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found and from where they were rushed to hospital.
Information obtained from the US federal contracts registry reveals that the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has funded a number of military projects performed at the UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL), or Porton Down, over the last decade.
Among them: experimental respiratory infection of non-human primates (marmosets) with Anthrax, Ebola virus, Marburg virus, Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus, Western equine encephalitis virus, and Eastern equine encephalitis virus. The US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has also funded experiments on animals which were exposed to chemical agents such as Sulfur Mustard and Phosgene gas. Phosgene gas was used as a chemical weapon during World War I where it was responsible for about 85 % of the 100,000 deaths caused by chemical weapons.
DTRA has also been granted full access to DSTL scientific and technical capabilities, and test data under a 2011 contract for the collaboration and exchange of scientific and technical capabilities with the UK Ministry of Defence.”
“Rupert Christopher Soames OBE (born 18 May 1959) is a British businessman, CEO of the outsourcing company Serco. .. His brother is the Conservative MP Sir Nicholas Soames .. Soames was educated at St. Aubyns Preparatory School in Rottingdean, East Sussex and Eton College, and then Worcester College at the University of Oxford, during which time he worked as a DJ at the London nightclub Annabel’s, as well as being elected to the Presidency of the Oxford Union. .. Upon graduation, he was offered a position at GEC by the managing director Arnold Weinstock. He remained at GEC for 15 years, working in the company’s avionics and computing divisions, and became managing director of Avery Berkel, running the company’s UK, India, Asia and Africa operations. .. After leaving GEC in 1997, Soames joined the software company Misys as chief executive of its Midas-Kapiti division. He was promoted to chief executive of the Banking and Securities Division in June 2000. Soames left Misys after a disagreement with Misys founder Kevin Lomax on the company’s direction, and was appointed chief executive of power hire group Aggreko in June 2003, replacing Philip Harrower who died when his car collided with a train in the United States.”
“Sir Arthur Nicholas Winston Soames (born 12 February 1948), sometimes known as Nick Soames, is a British Conservative Party politician who has been the Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex since 1997. He is a grandson of Winston Churchill.
Soames was first elected to Parliament in 1983 for Crawley. He was Minister of State for the Armed Forces from 1994 to 1997 in the government of John Major. His main political interests are defence, international relations, rural affairs and industry. ..
In 1970, he was appointed Equerry to HRH The Prince of Wales; he has remained a close friend of the Prince ever since and publicly criticised Diana, Princess of Wales, during the couple’s estrangement. When Diana first accused the Prince of Wales of adultery with Camilla Parker Bowles, Soames told the BBC that the accusation, and Diana’s fear of being slandered by her husband’s courtiers, stemmed merely from Diana’s mental illness, and “the advanced stages of paranoia”. Charles later admitted his adultery and Soames apologised. When questioned by the inquest into the death of Diana, Soames said that he saw his job as “to speak up for the Prince of Wales”. He denied threatening Diana [who may have been seen as a prospective whistleblower for ConAir pedophile or Mendenhall oath rituals], and warning her, “accidents happen” in the months before she died.
In 1972, he left Kensington Palace and the army to work as a stockbroker. In 1974, he became a personal assistant; first to Sir James Goldsmith and then in 1976 to United States Senator Mark Hatfield, whose employ he left in 1978 [was he at Kristine Marcy’s Mendenhall Baby conception in November 1978?] to become a director of Bland Welch, Lloyd’s Brokers. Between 1979–81, he was an assistant director of the Sedgwick Group. He fought Central Dunbartonshire in Scotland in 1979, where Labour’s Hugh McCartney defeated him by 12,003 votes.”
“‘Now You Can Be Both’ Mother, Professional
By Judy Mann August 8, 1979
Kristine Mary, now a supergrade in the Office of Personnel Management, had her first chile 2 1/2 years ago, when she was a budget examiner in the Office of Management and Budget. At nights she was finishing up her law degree at George Washington University.
“My baby was due the 17th of December. My last exam was on the 15th. I went to work, took off a little early, took my exam, went home,wondering why I felt so bad. Imimmediately, I went into labor. It blew everybody’s mind that I could wrap up everything at work, wrap up everything at school and have my baby. That was of the all-time coup.”
She had succeeded, beyond a question, in proving that she could do it all — that she could work during her entire pregnancy in the high-pressure atmosphere of OMB and also finish law school.
Kristine Marcy’s second child was due August 5 and again, she has worked throughout her pregnancy, this time as assistant director for human resources for veterans and labor programs. She has turned 32 and has been in demanding, supergrade jobs since her daughter was 8 months old. Her husband, Eric Marcy, is an assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia in the fraud division.
Kristine Marcy has noticed subtle but important changes in her working environment since her last pregnancy. People, she says, are a little more realistic about working mothers and pregnant women. Maybe a little more relaxed about it.And she says she doesn’t feel she has to prove a point anymore.
“There’s just a lot more familiarity with pregnant women in major jobs around government. It’s not such a shock.” Several years ago, she believes, women felt they had to be either mothers or professionals. “Now you can be both,” she says. It’s acceptable to show some emotion, it’s acceptable to alter your job style. I think that’s happening across the board, though, for men and for women.”
She worked to the end of her first pregnancy to prove that it could be done. Had she felt sick, she says, she would have stayed home if necessary and found some other way of explaning her absence to the office. “Now, I would just say, look, I feel rotten and I’m staying home, even if it was obvious it was pregnancy related. I don’t feel it’s really a question of having to prove yoursele anymore . . . I’ve proved myself. Obviously, I can stay up all night [with a sick child] and still come into work. I don’t think I carry that burden anymore.”
She feels pregnancy and motherhood are accepted “in stride” by her coworkers. “I don’t get probing questions or the advice I got the first time. I just couldn’t walk down the hall without people saying it’s a boy or it’s a girl. I haven’t gotten nearly the unsolicited comments.
“I was very conscious that all the men whe worked for me would go home and ask their wives what it’s like, so they would know how to deal with me. I assumed that. I don’t know that any of them did. I tried to keep my pregnancy secret as long as possible and have them find out I’ve been pregnant for four months and hadn’t behaved any differently.”
Mendenhall’s baby [Conceived by Nicholas Soames?] was due in early August . “I now work from about 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Everybody at work has so afraid of being offensive, that they ignore it.””
“Subject: “Con-Air” in 1/6 San Diego Union Tribune [news article] You won’t need a reservation on this airline — no matter how many travelers flood the airport. .. Call it ConAir and Little knows what you mean. It’s the name the air transport system has picked up inside the U.S. Marshals Service, which flies a fleet of 13 airplanes on regular routes across the country every day. During the past year, the prisoner airline spent $24 million moving more than 100,000 federal inmates — including 12,000 from San Diego — to and from trials, prisons and medical centers nationwide. … Among the most infamous of its recent travelers were Unabomber suspect Theodore Kaczynski and the men accused in the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building, Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh. Nichols and McVeigh were transported in the dead of night in an operation much akin to a clandestine military operation, Little said. He did not want to go into details but mentioned that a decoy plane was among the ploys used to guard against possible attempts by supporters to free the suspects.
Federal officials have always been circumspect about the fine points of prisoner movement. But ConAir soon could gain a higher public profile with the planned release in June of a movie by the same name. In the Disney film, Nicolas Cage plays a hapless prisoner who wanders into a hijack plot aboard a Marshals Service plane carrying a group of high-security inmates.
The Hollywood marshals rough up some of the prisoners, and the plane crashes, leaving the real Marshals Service frowning on the silver screen’s invention, said Kristine Marcy, a top official in charge of detentions. … Prisoners — mostly people being held for entering the country with false documents — are flown from San Diego to Las Vegas, where they are housed in the city jail. They are flown back a few days later for deportation hearings. .. Because of the San Diego jail space problem, there was no holiday break here for ConAir. While flights in other parts of the country were cut back during the Christmas season, San Diego continued its rigorous schedule of two flights every weekday and one each Saturday and Sunday.
Marcy said the air transportation system inspires a high level of commitment in its personnel. “People are always willing to be on standby or to work overtime,” she said, noting that the planes are not always used for prisoner transport. After a hurricane flattened parts of the Virgin Islands last year, the prisoner transportation system flew in some of the first reinforcements to help establish law and order, she said.
After the Oklahoma City bombing, the airline flew evidence to the FBI crime laboratory in Washington, D.C., she said.
With planes crisscrossing the country, traveling through multiple time zones and even venturing around the globe, scheduling and tracking have gone high-tech. It’s all accomplished from a scheduling center in Kansas City, Mo., referred to as the “travel agency” for ConAir. It handles up to 500 electronic requests for flights each day, federal officials say.
Flight tracking begins an hour before the first plane takes off. Throughout the day, employees monitor the movements of every plane until the last craft is safely on the ground.
On board, a crew of deputy U.S. marshals, aviation enforcement officers and contract guards keeps order in the rear of the plane. Passengers are loaded under high security at a remote area of an airport. Seat assignments are not optional.
The planes fly out of a hub in Oklahoma City, the center of the country, making large loops east and west, dropping off and picking up passengers as they land at 40 major cities.
The planes also loop along separate West Coast and East Coast circuits.
.. He said jail cells, which generally are rented by the Marshals Service to hold federal prisoners until they are sentenced to a long-term facility, can cost up to $100 a night on the East Coast, while in Texas or Louisiana the cost of a cell might run as low as $35 a night.
“You make up the cost of moving a prisoner pretty quickly at that rate,” Little said.
He said other reasons for moving prisoners include the need to separate gang members or suspects testifying against each other.
ConAir also moves inmates for the federal Bureau of Prisons, which may want to transfer someone from a high-to low-security facility.
Higher-security prison space is most expensive, Little explained, so prison authorities like to quickly move people who do not need the extra supervision.”
“Prisoner Escorting and Court Services

We are working with the Ministry of Justice and HMCTS to reduce the number of people that have to travel, using Mobile Video Court Services to link courts with the prisoner.”
“Prior to SBA, [Field McConnell’s sister] Ms. [Kristine] Marcy served in several roles at the Department of Justice, including Senior Counsel for Detention and Deportation at the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), where she oversaw the full range of INS detention and deportation programs and addressed multiple infrastructure and management problems stemming from rapid growth (up 45 percent) in the detention program. Prior to her position at INS, Ms. Marcy served for five years as the Associate Director for Operations Support of the Department of Justice, U.S. Marshals Service (USMS). There, she directed DOJ’s detention program for more than 23,000 prisoners (the nation’s largest). In 1995, she was assigned responsibility by the Attorney General for developing a DOJ-wide transportation system [ConAir] known as the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System, or JPATS-a nationwide network of leased commercial and government-owned aircraft and ground vehicles. While at the USMS, she also developed a prisoner medical services program and directed the agency’s $1.6 billion seized assets program that redirected proceeds forfeited by criminals and crime organizations to local and Federal law enforcement. Prior to the USMS, she was the Associate Deputy Attorney General for the Department of Justice, where she served as a lawyer who prepared the Deputy Attorney General for duties related to budget and appropriations, executive personnel, and other management areas. She also oversaw activities of the Justice Management Division, Bureau of Prisons, Office of Justice Programs, the Inspector General, and the U.S. Trustees (bankruptcy program).”
“Ministry of Defence 1 (MD1), also known as “Churchill’s Toyshop”, was a British weapon research and development organisation of the Second World War.”
“Winston Churchill’s shocking use of chemical weapons The use of chemical weapons in Syria has outraged the world. But it is easy to forget that Britain has used them – and that Winston Churchill was a powerful advocate for them Secrecy was paramount. Britain’s imperial general staff knew there would be outrage if it became known that the government was intending to use its secret stockpile of chemical weapons. But Winston Churchill, then secretary of state for war, brushed aside their concerns. As a long-term advocate of chemical warfare, he was determined to use them against the Russian Bolsheviks. In the summer of 1919, 94 years before the devastating strike in Syria, Churchill planned and executed a sustained chemical attack on northern Russia. The British were no strangers to the use of chemical weapons. During the third battle of Gaza in 1917, General Edmund Allenby had fired 10,000 cans of asphyxiating gas at enemy positions, to limited effect. But in the final months of the first world war, scientists at the governmental laboratories at Porton in Wiltshire developed a far more devastating weapon: the top secret “M Device”, an exploding shell containing a highly toxic gas called diphenylaminechloroarsine. The man in charge of developing it, Major General Charles Foulkes, called it “the most effective chemical weapon ever devised”.”
“Serco farewell to NPL after 19 years of innovation
Published: 8 Jan 2015
Serco said goodbye to the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) at the end of December 2014 after 19 years of extraordinary innovation and science that has seen the establishment build a world-leading reputation and deliver billions of pounds of benefit for the UK economy. During that period under Serco’s management and leadership, NPL has delivered an extraordinary variety and breadth of accomplishments for the UK’s economy and industry. Some of the key achievements during that time have been: – .. It has been estimated that work carried out by the Centre of Carbon Measurement at NPL will save eight million tonnes of carbon emissions reductions (2% of UK footprint) and over half a billion pounds in economic benefit over the next decade. … NPL’s caesium fountain atomic clock is accurate to 1 second in 158 million years and NPL is playing a key role in introducing rigour to high frequency trading in the City through NPLTime. .. “I’m also immensely proud of Serco’s track record in managing and operating a key UK asset. NPL is quite rightly recognised as one of the top three NMIs in the world, despite having a limited budget compared with many others. .. We leave the NPL in a very healthy state.”
“CBRNE (pronounced “C-B-R-N-E”) is an acronym for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive materials. These materials are very dangerous, and can hurt many people. When they are used on purpose, CBRNE materials are weapons of mass destruction. However, CBRNE events can also happen accidentally. A report from the White House in 2011 said “there is no greater danger to the [United States] than a terrorist attack with a weapon of mass destruction.” Because CBRNE weapons are so dangerous, countries around the world are working on preventing CBRNE attacks, and learning how to react to them if they do happen.”
“The Emergency Planning College also known as “the Hawkhills” is a company based in the United Kingdom which is involved in activities to promote organisational resilience. Since 2010 the college has been operated by Serco, delivering training approved by the Civil Contingencies Secretariat (CCS) of the Cabinet Office. The college buildings are located at Easingwold near York in England. … Simulation and Media Support The method of delivering an exercise is flexible and will be designed with the client to meet their requirements with options ranging from simple paper-based delivery through to full use of their real communications systems and advance computer simulation. In addition, media play can also be added in the form of news injects and the provision of experienced journalists and television crews to help test procedures and also assist in training key staff.”

“Project Inspire – Site rationalisation programme
27. The aim of the site rationalisation programme is to achieve more effective working between staff, originally spread over 15 different sites. After detailed study, the Dstl Board decided to rationalise Dstl’s activities onto three core sites-Porton Down, Fort Halstead and Portsdown West with an enclave at Alvestoke) by 2009. The plan was approved by Ministers in November 2003.
28. Following this, Dstl set up a project to cover the construction needed at Porton Down and Portsdown West to achieve the 3 core site plan and the provision of facilities management for these sites. An invitation to tender for the contract was produced, a preferred bidder selected and detailed contract negotiations concluded.
29. Prior to Serco‘s appointment as Preferred Bidder on 10th August 2005 the tender evaluation had resulted in a clear understanding of the 3 bidders’ proposals and how they would impact upon Dstl in due diligence and beyond. As a result the 15-year facilities management contract was awarded to Serco Defence and Aerospace on 24th July 2006.”
“Police drop investigation into Serco prisoner transport contract
The outsourcing group said there was no evidence of individual or corporate wrongdoing
7:42AM GMT 19 Dec 2014
The City of London Police has closed an investigation into Serco‘s prisoner transport contract after more than a year of work, enabling the firm to continue with the contract until 2018.
The Ministry of Justice called in the police in August 2013 to examine whether Serco had misleadingly recorded prisoners as being ready for court when they were not, in order to meet the performance criteria of the contract.
However, Serco said on Friday that the probe into the Prisoner Escort and Custody Services (PECS) contract had been closed after the police found no evidence to support bringing charges against the outsourcing firm or its staff.
“The information obtained was also sufficient for the City of London Police to conclude there was no evidence of any corporate-wide conspiracy or an intention to falsify figures to meet the DRACT [designated ready and available for court time] contract requirement by senior Serco management or at the board level of the company,” the firm said in a statement.
The Ministry of Justice had said it would end the contract immediately if the firm’s board was found to have done wrong.”
