The Obama administration picks Connecticut official Kevin Counihan to run HealthCare.gov.
Last week, the Government Accountability office released some of its conclusions about the problems surrounding the launch of HealthCare.gov, like cost overruns, schedule delays and an alleged lack of proper oversight over the project's prime contractor. It warned problems with the website could resurface later this year. GAO says the management weaknesses that caused the problems in the first place are still in place at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Roger Waldron, president of the Coalition for Government Procurement, joins In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu. He says the procurement side of the issue isn't the true villian in this ongoing I-T saga.
It's been a while since the problems surrounding HealthCare.gov were front page news. But a new examination of the site's troubled launch by the Government Accountability Office makes very clear that the IT acquisition problems that existed in the program over the past few years are not a thing of the past, and users could run into trouble once again during the next open enrollment period. Bill Woods is Director of Acquisition and Sourcing Management Issues at the GAO. On In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu, he shared some conclusions from their examination of the acquisition challenges at CMS.
Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell appointed a new high-level operations manager to closely supervise the online portal to coverage under President Barack Obama's health care law. She also announced that she's hiring a CEO and a technology leader to specifically handle all aspects of the health law's coverage expansion.
The problems at Veterans Affairs, and the unsuccessful rollout of healthcare.gov could be evidence of something systemic. Some call it a 'civil service crisis'. Whatever it is, it's claimed jobs at both the career and political appointee levels. John Palguta is the Vice President for Policy at the Partnership. He spoke with Tom and Emily on the Federal Drive.
The House Committee on Space, Science and Technology is asking for a top-to-bottom security review of the HealthCare.gov website. Committee chairman Lamar Smith is asking the Government Accountability Office to do the review.
The furor over HealthCare.gov isn't gone quite yet. Several congressional committees still plan to conduct postmortems on what went wrong. The rollout of the website is just one example of how the federal government brand has taken a hit. Sanjay Sardar, chief information officer at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and government co-chair for this year's Management of Change conference, tells In Depth with Francis Rose restoring that brand is a very important job for the federal government for many reasons.
