CGI's contract was terminated. Sebelius still has a job, but CGI's gone.
Wow, I am amazed it took them so long to throw their crony buddy under the bus...
Michelle Obama will be pissed.
Did they still get paid?
Now we know the real reason Michelle stayed behind in Hawaii.
They already got their billion dollar hush money.
Well, now they can retire and enjoy their $600 million without having to worry about trying to fix anything. Nice cozy early retirement.
any refund of the 500 - 800 million ?
Only $600 million ?
That was the initial amount.. I think there was more after October’s rollout, not to mention all the state sites they did as well.
I’m amazed they did it at all! Usually screwing up in gummint work just means you’re re-hired to do it more.
“Michelle Obama will be pissed.”
IMO you’re not reading this right. If so, only in the Kabuki theater sense.
Michelles’ pal got her wad, the company is off the hook for any future work, there will be no clawback of funds paid to them, there will be no performance guarantee. As such, any software writer (and there are a hundred other things like this, like construction) will tell you that the last 20% is pretty tough, and 10% is the real bear.
So they got paid to do 100% of the work and they kinda sorta did 70% of it, badly, and they’re gone.
Not to worry, everybody involved will get a promotion.
I look at it precisely as do you.
I know just enough to know that coming in behind another contractor is a very, very difficult thing to do. It’s most often best to trash the mess and start over rather than try to figure out somebody else’s program/coding. This change will likely not improve the Obamacare inner workings very much unless these guys are miracle workers .... and from comments on another thread, they are not magicians in any way other than making your money disappear.
Shouldn’t someone go to prison for stealing $600,000,000 ? Is there no accountability for these criminals?
Mooch’s fellow affirmative action, completely incompetent classmate walks off into the sunset with millions of US taxpayer dollars.
