Coming To The Rescue
With a grand total of well over $350 million in contract dollars given to Accenture since the start of last year, it's no wonder that, in its time of need, the federal government turned to Accenture to patch together the problems with the struggling HealthCare.gov site. The track record so far for the site hasn't been great -- with issues plaguing everything from the front-end user experience to back-end systems since the site's October launch.
Last week, Accenture announced that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) had selected it for a $45 million one-year contract to figure out exactly what needs to be done to fix the site, taking over the contract from highly-criticized CGI Federal.
Accenture is no stranger to building and updating systems for the federal government. Take a look at 10 federal contracts, plus a bonus acquisition, that give Accenture the chops to help improve the ailing site.
