The definition of crazy: Healthcare.gov developer, CGI gets more gov't. work after Obamacare flop

What is it about the primary cultprit behind the failure of healthcare.gov that allows them to continue to win federal contracts despite the most spectacularly incompetent website design and implementation in history?

The Daily Caller is reporting that CGI, the general contractor used by CMS to build the Obamacare website, has received six additional contracts from CMS after the failures were discovered.

The company that built the failed Obamacare website received six additional contracts from the Obama administration's Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services after the website's disastrous launch, The Daily Caller has learned.

According to a company spokesman, CGI Federal was awarded six additional contracts from CMS worth approximately $37 million between October 1 -- when the over $600 million Obamacare website launched -- through January 2014.

CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of the Canadian company CGI Group, and was formed in 2009 to bring CGI into the federal contracting business. The company employs Michelle Obama's Princeton classmate, and 2010 White House Christmas guest, Toni T0wnes-Whitley as a top executive.

CGI, which received the Obamacare website contract in Obama's first term, was fired from its role as prime contractor on the website in January.

But the idea that CMS, a division of Kathleen Sebelius' Department of Health and Human Services, would cancel its other pending contracts with CGI "does not reflect the relationship that CGI has with CMS," a CGI spokesman told TheDC.

The New York Times and Washington Post need to back Rick Moran up - he’s stepping into ‘big money’ stuff and that can be dangerous.

The power of leverage when you know who and where the bodies are buried.
