IRS Contract For MILLIONS With Company that Botched

We’ve all heard the old saying about insanity often attributed to Albert Einstein: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Someone please explain to me why this action by the IRS shouldn’t qualify as insanity.

Seven months after federal officials fired CGI Federal for its botched work on Obamacare website, the IRS awarded the same company a $4.5 million IT contract for its new Obamacare tax program.

Bloomberg now estimates that the disastrous has cost US (the taxpayers) $2.1 billion dollars and CGI Federal was responsible, and now we’re supposed to bend over again?

CGI is a $10.5 billion Montreal-based company that has forever been etched into the public’s mind as the company behind the bungled Obamacare main website.

Bungled? Bungled? The rollout was an ICON of catastrophic proportions in the world of computer software. It will go on the Mt. Rushmore of software failures! Bungled – my furry butt! I spent about 40 years in the software industry and I’ve never seen a more incompetent failure of a software release – it was a monumental and unsurpassed. Bungled doesn’t do it justice.

After facing a year of embarrassing failures, federal officials finally pulled the plug on the company and terminated CGI’s contract in January 2014.

Yet on Aug. 11, seven months later, IRS officials signed a new contract with CGI to provide “critical functions” and “management support” for its Obamacare tax program, according to the Federal Procurement Data System, a federal government procurement database.

The IRS contract is worth $4.46 million, according to the FPDS data. The contract expires Aug. 15, 2015.

This is representative of our current administration. They are all so massively inept that they view all incompetence as normal; or about “par for the course” as our duffer-in-chief would say.

    Well, Garnet, you just confirmed that insanity runs rampant in our government. One can only imagine how much longer it will take to process tax returns after this. Americans can rest assured that their documents will be safe and secure.

    With repeated failures such as this being the norm, it’s no wonder they don’t see American exceptionalism.

    How much does CGI contribute to democrat campaign coffers? That’s the new standard for competence.

    Good work spreading the news, Garnet.

    Garnet, we did a post about that company. It seems as if the CEO’s wife was a CLASSMATE of Moochie’s at the “institutionof higher learning”. You can check it out here:
