Failed HeathCare. gov Website Design Company gets Shot at Billions More of Taxpayer Dollars.


NDC - If you were CGI Federal, you’d probably be laying low when it comes to government contracts. After all, it’s likely that they can be considered the sole factor in Obamacare’s initial failure to meet any of it’s benchmark goals. Their shitty website, terrible management and utter incompetence probably cost taxpayers millions and made getting basic health care coverage a nightmare for almost every American who encountered the system. Fortunately for CGI, however, this is America, where our government considers initial failures to be mere bumps in the road to unbridled success, so CGI Federal, which has already wasted billions of taxpayer dollars, will now be responsible for wasting billions more, as it was just awarded an open-ended contract to compete for huge services task orders.

"CGI Federal Inc.announced today that the General Services Administration (GSA) has chosen the company as a prime contractor under a new contract vehicle known as One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS). The multi-award contract has an unlimited ceiling, allowing CGI to compete for billions of dollars in complex professional services task orders across all agencies in the U.S. federal government. 
GSA oversees the business of the federal government, among other things supplying federal purchasers with cost-effective, high-quality products and services from commercial vendors. CGI is one of 74 awardees under OASIS, an “indefinite delivery indefinite quantity” (IDIQ) contract that will allow awardees to compete on a range of program management, management consulting, logistics, engineering, scientific and financial management services. Awardees will also be able to offer technology solutions as an ancillary service. For the first time, agencies will be able to purchase high-value professional services along with supporting IT solutions through a single contract, saving customers time and money."  
Ah, the Age of Obama.....
