System Description. Provide a description of the system that addresses the following elements:
- a general description of the information in the system. This system processes inbound electronic images of patent applications received by Serco Inc. from USPTO. The system consists of a variety of application review, research tools and data entry tools to facilitate the evaluation and classification of the application creating a series of US Patent Classification (USPC) system and Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) system classification data elements that describe the application.
- a description of a typical transaction conducted on the system. Serco PPS receives patent applications directly from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
- any information sharing conducted by the system. Serco PPS does not share any information with other agencies, individuals, or organizations. The information provided by USPTO is used by Serco for authorized activities performed by internal personnel only.
- a citation of the legal authority to collect PII and/or BII. The PII and BII data is collected by the USPTO to enable identification of the inventory and facilitate the patent application process. It is provided to the Serco PPS so that classification activities can be performed on the collected patent application.
- the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS). 199 security impact categories for the system.
As you can read in the description of the initial process Serco uses to screen patents, the entire nature of the patent is provided to Serco. If Serco doesn’t approve a patent, it doesn’t go forward. In other words, Serco controls American innovation and has the opportunity to steal any patent that is desirable to them. America is feeding British innovation and we pay Serco to conduct this theft of intellectual property.
If you thought the theft of IP by China was bad, Serco’s complete control of our patents is much worse. Below, you will read our case study of one entrepreneur who was ripped off royally by this corrupt patent system. And we happen to know many others like McKibben, especially in the energy sector, who aren’t able to make theri stories public…yet.
Serco Services in America – In its Own Words
It is often best to see what a corporation says about itself on its own website. Serco reveals the extensive controls they have established in all aspects of American life through bragging about their accomplishments. Once you have seen the pervasive control that Serco has on the U. S. military and all aspects of government, you may be shocked.
You can read these descriptions about Serco at: https://www.serco-na.com/. The descriptions are lifted from their website, in their own words:

SERCO’s Service Abilities are Highly Exaggerated
It may come as a shock to you that SERCO seems to be able to “do anything” in all areas of business and warfare. What company can say that they have all of this “expertise” in so many diverse field of knowledge? No one can do so and still be effective and efficient. Serco is well known for being about 65% efficient. This should be expected. No company has the know-how and expertise to be efficient at “all things.”
Essentially, Senior Executive Service members throughout the U. S. federal government simply grant contracts and Serco tries to “keep up.” A recent example of its incompetence is in the Obamacare website rollout which was extremely costly, yet, to this day, is highly unfunctional to the average user.
Essentially, SERCO is like a monopoly of U. S. data management run by a foreign nation. This “selling out” of U. S. government contracts is corrupt cronyism that is well hidden from the public. These deals happen as no bid contracts are shuffled across SES members’ desks and follow the common pattern of choosing the usual government contractor that pays-to-play.
Serco U. S. Government Contracts
It may be hard to imagine all of the contracts that Serco has with the U. S. government so we listed some of the most obvious ones for you. The list of U. S. contracts is on the Serco website, with additional information on Wikipedia. It is not a secret that Serco gets any contract it wants and often with no other companies bidding.
Patriots might ask, “Why would we continually give government contracts to foreign nations and corporations that have a terrible track record of efficiency?”
We do not know a good answer to that question. Any America would respond by saying that it is wrong, crazy, and economically unsound to pay foreigners to manage sensitive American interests. Patriots around the world do not support Queen Elizabeth and the British Monarchy in operating, managing, and financially benefitting from our countries any longer.
The list below is not comprehensive and there are many ways to hide the extensive number of Serco contracts with the U. S. military and government.

The list above does not include the many contracts Serco has with U. S. corporations, states, cities, or other companies. No one knows the true extent of the strangle-hold Serco has on America. If you pay attention closely you will notice that when a serious data management problem arises, it is usually Serco that has the contract to safeguard that data.
Serco’s Future in America
It is obvious to see from the presentation above that Serco has spread its tentacles into every aspect of the U. S. government and the U. S. military. Serco has also dominated many other industries in the U. S. economy and yet their name and influence is little known or recognized. Any American, when presented with this information above, would immediately conclude that there is no good reason to let Brits do what Americans can do quite nicely, thank you.
Why would we sell out our most sensitive data to a foreign country who has, quite frankly, not really been our friend from the beginning. Indeed, it does look like the American Revolution has not really ended and that the “Crown” still taxes every American for business deals that the common citizen is not aware of. No American chooses “Britain First” when it comes to providing services for our military or government — that makes no sense at all.
Serco is simply the ‘tip of the iceberg’ when it comes to British “interests” in America. Many of the old English, Dutch, and German bankers have benefited greatly by institutions like the U. S. Federal Reserve, U. S. Central Banks, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, and the International Monetary Fund. Once you consider the UK’s part in these multi-national (global) organizations, you can track billions of dollars flowing out of America and into the pocket of the British Crown.
The British Crown “Agents” are indeed a long-standing set of monopolies that America has had to contend with since the founding of the British inspired Council on Foreign Relations, the chief body that creates U. S. foreign policy for the U. S. State Department. Britain is always considered to be our closest partner in all things war, military intelligence, and global domination. We share our military “intelligence” with the UK. But it might surprise some people to learn that the British-American (Anglo-American) connection reaches deep into the pockets of U. S. tax payers through companies like Serco.
Serco, and other foreign corporations are the usual “no-bid” contractors always selected by the Senior Executive Service members throughout the federal government who make sure the status quo is not disturbed and that the “old boys” get their piece of the pie. This type of selling-out of America is an erosion of the U. S. Republic and an assault on the U. S. Constitution and the U. S. Bill of Rights. Tax-payers are being sold out to foreign countries while services for U. S. soldiers decline and the data being managed by Serco and others is consistently compromised.
It is time to fire Serco and let Americans do the work and gain the benefit of receiving the hard-earned dollars of U. S. tax-payers. The Crown of England, the Bank of England, the City of London, and British owned companies “NEED NOT APPLY.”
