Obamacare contractors say testing of website was limited

Bloomberg, October 25, 2013
The U.S. government did final tests of the Obamacare website just days before it went public, while similar projects are tested for months, the main contractors told a House panel investigating flaws that hobbled the debut. Units of CGI Group Inc. (GIB/A) and UnitedHealth Group Inc. (UNH), which designed healthcare.gov, said a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services was responsible for the end-to-end testing that they said should have been done months earlier. "It would have been better to have more time," Cheryl Campbell, a senior vice president at CGI Federal Inc., the site designer, told the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
