Re: The answer to the HealthCare.gov problem is not in greater oversight . . .
Law makers like to think that having a central overseer would prevent fiasco's like HealthCare.gov, but even with OMB's PortfolioStat IT investment review process, and other system checks, OMB overseers still didn't catch the problems that arose around HealthCare.gov.  Oversight still won't compensate for contracting constraints and poor project management.

The answer to the HealthCare.gov problem is not in greater oversight . . .
Increasing oversight is not the answer . . . the problems are in the method of contracting as illustrated by a recent article by Andy Akrouche titled "The Relational Divide: Why CGI HealthCare.gov experience reflects more about the contracting process than the company itself" (http://wp.me/pYOvn-i7).
