    According to DAVID SARNO in the LA Times yesterday:

    In an internal memo first obtained by the advocacy group Consumer Watchdog, the city in December said Google and its partner Computer Sciences Corp. repeatedly committed to and then missed deadlines to solve data security issues that were preventing the Los Angeles Police Department from moving onto Google’s system.

    “CSC and Google’s behavior goes beyond a mere failure to communicate in a timely manner and instead, on several occasions, has risen to the level of misrepresentation,” the memo from city technology chief Randi Levin said. “These failures are wholly unacceptable to the city of Los Angeles.”

    Additionally, to add insult to injury:

    The U.S. Justice Department is also raising questions about Google’s claims that its email system had received federal security accreditation, which the Internet search giant has touted as a key feature of its Google Apps for Government product.
