problems successes

healthcare gov
  • Lost a $90 Million contract due to an issue with the website
  • Majority responsible for back end coding of the website (45% according to Washington post)
  • Was blamed by U.S. Government/Obama for not meeting deadline
healthcare gov cont cont.
  • What they don’t want you to know
    • The system requirements were specified by the government late
    • The website was contracted out to a handful of companies that all were working together to build the site on the back end
    • The part CGI was responsible for functioned as it was designed, however not fully complete because rushed
    • The part that truly failed was the integration that was supposed to be done by the government
      • “Scapegoat”
    • Ex: Building a car at GM
vermont healthcare website
Vermont Healthcare Website
  • Worked on website in 2011 (around same time as the contract for the federal website was obtained)
  • Functioned perfectly as intended
    • Issue:
      • Functionality of the website was being changed by government
        • Led to the website not working because it wasn’t intended to be used differently
        • Missed deadlines as a result
food for thought
Food for thought…
  • No where in any article or release has CGI made a statement blaming anyone, nor was willing to comment on the matter.
  • “Family-knit” company
    • Don’t point fingers
  • Established in Netherlands in 2004, eventually tested successfully in 2008/2009
  • Goal was to support police investigations for catching criminals in the act
  • Managed by Dutch Police
  • Since then 10% of 400 monthly arrests directly attributed to Burgernet and 40% involuntarily
conclusions from examples
Conclusions from Examples
  • and Vermont Website:
    • Loss of revenue from contract leading to reduced profits
    • Reputation hurt
  • Burgernet:
    • Shows interest in foreign affairs on a more community based level
    • Increases foreign reputation leading to more contracts/opportunities
  • Not much to do when used as a scapegoat
  • Continue to strive towards the family knit attitude
  • Keep with CGI group expansion strategy
