Referenced during the invasion of Academy City where Accelerator becomes it's newest recruit. They are later properly introduced during the Skill-Out uprising to deal with Komaba Ritoku's troublesome plans against the city.
GROUP was formed to take care of internal affairs of Academy City's dark Side, similar to ITEM, and more often than not, perform illegal acts for Academy City. Like other organisations such as ITEM, GROUP take orders from a person who only contacts them via telephone, though Accelerator seems to be contacted by their backer more often than the others.
After the events of Volume 15, GROUP remains the only underground organisation that remains intact out of the five that were introduced in the same novel.
After the events of Volume 19, Accelerator leaves GROUP in order to help an ailing Last Order.
After the war, the members of GROUP are freed of the dark side's grasp. If they will ever officially reunite as GROUP again remains to be seen.

There are other members of the organization, such as the technical department which supports the organization by giving the members useful technical aid. As well as a group that cleans-up and disposes evidence after missions.
