US health secretary calls for probe of Obamacare website launch

Orlando Sentinel / Reuters, December 12, 2013
U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Wednesday asked the department's inspector general to investigate the performance of private contractors in the flawed launch of the Obamacare website. The healthcare enrollment website, a key part of President Barack Obama's sweeping healthcare law, crashed on its October 1 launch and was subjected to weeks of emergency fixes. "I am asking the Inspector General to review the acquisition process, overall program management, and contractor performance and payment issues related to the development and management of the website," Sebelius said in a blog post.
