Officials were warned about health site woes

The New York Times, November 19, 2013

Senior Obama administration officials, including several in the White House, were warned by an outside management consultant early this year that the effort to build the HealthCare.gov site was falling behind and at risk of failure unless immediate steps were taken to correct the problems, according to documents released by House investigators. The report, by McKinsey & Company, which was prepared in late March at the request of the Department of Health and Human Services, said that management indecision and a ?lack of transparency and alignment on critical issues? were threatening progress, despite the tight deadline.
