Roger Waldron, President, Coalition for Government Procurement

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.
