WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration has turned to a private contractor to take the lead in resolving the computer problems that have plagued President Barack Obama's biggest domestic initiative, his health care law.
Administration officials announced Friday that one of the website's subcontractors — QSSI, Inc. — is being promoted to general contractor with overall responsibility for fixing the HealthCare.gov website.
The problem-riddled site was supposed to be the online portal for uninsured Americans to get medical coverage under Obama's health care law, but it has turned into a huge bottleneck instead.
Until now, officials at a government agency had the lead role.
QSSI has built a component of the website — called the data hub — that is working relatively well.
