Lawmakers wants answers from Accenture
By Allison Bell
House Energy and Commerce Committee leaders hope Accenture will shed some light on what’s happening at HealthCare.gov.
Health and Human Services hired Accenture earlier this year to replace CGI Group Inc. as the troubled web site’s lead contractor.
Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., chairman of the committees, and other Republican committee leaders have written to Accenture CEO David Moskowitz to ask about the status of HealthCare.gov and the company’s work on the site so far.
The committee has complained about not getting clear, complete information from HHS.
Upton and colleagues want Moskowitz to explain how his company got the $91 million contract, provide information about the firm’s arrangements with HHS, and a description of the work done so far.
The lawmakers also want any information Moskowitz has about the status of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act exchanges run by HHS.
The lawmakers want the information by March 6. They listed Karen Christian and Sean Hayes as the aides in charge of collecting the information.
