Bill Woods, Acquisition & Sourcing Management Issues Director, GAO

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.
