Developer of troubled ACA website has W.Va. computer contract
A company involved in the problematic federal health care exchange website has a contract to design a system to manage West Virginia state government accounts.
CGI Group subsidiary CGI Federal is the developer of the complex U.S. government website that's been hit by technical problems, resulting in long waits for Americans to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
CGI Federal is a subsidiary of Montreal-based CGI Group Inc. The Charleston Gazette reports CGI Group's Public Sector group is handling an overhaul of the state government's software system.
The state awarded a contract to CGI Group in 2011 to integrate state agencies' budgeting, financial management and human resources operations. The new system, called OASIS, is expected to be in operation by 2015.
