    Government awards more contracts to company that created glitchy ObamaCare website

    CGI Federal Inc, the company that created large parts of the error-plagued ObamaCare exchange website, which it says it is scrambling to fix, has recently been awarded several other government contracts.

    Since the ObamaCare exchange website launched on Oct. 1, government officials have signed at least five different agreements with CGI totaling $7 million, according to USASpending.gov, a government website that lists government contracts. The contracts were for computer and software development at the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Commerce, and the Environmental Protection Agency.

    To be fair to CGI it was the Obama Administration that chose who was to head up the whole thing, and Obama picked White House insiders with no experience in software development. CGI wasn't in a position to be critical of the choice and wasn't about to raise a stink over the poor guidance they were getting.

    only an incompetent clown would still be offering contracts to this company after the web site train wreck unless it is a pay off for keeping their mouth shut about him being an incompetent clown and blowing the whistle on him with proof they told him it wasn't ready

    I'm pretty sure that the Administration knows who is at fault by now, and it's not CGI. CGI knew to keep quiet, and, yes, they are now being rewarded for that I'll bet.

    The adminstration finally has brought in people from the IT industry who know what they are doing to bring all the pieces together so no doubt they'll have it working before too long. Once the web site is no longer the issue the real problems in the ACA will shine forth, like, for example, it's not affordable at all.

    What exactly do you see as the problem here, do you know anything about software development?

    What depends upon the situation, doubt the website is what you say a train wreck. Building software is not like building structures.

    What a stupid thing to say. Tell that to Howard Schultz, I'm in one of his establishment right now.

    Yes, because the last couple of business men really did such a bang up job with efficient government contracting

    Or government contract bidding for that matter.

    Liberals tend to make a lot of generalized statements. More proof that you are indeed a liberal.
