Here is another estimate.
"Seeking insight, Daily Intelligencer tracked down a senior official at the Department of Health and Human Services who, on the condition of anonymity, was willing to give us the skinny on CGIs Obamacare work and how much the company was paid for it. The official, who did not have permission to speak to the press, is a contracting specialist at HHS who has managed more than $1 billion in purchases (although did not work directly with CGI).
The answer? All contracts between CGI and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the arm of HHS that is charged with implementing the Affordable Care Act, inked since mid-2010 were for Obamacare IT work. The total value of the contracts meeting that description ( http://usaspending.gov/explore... ) is $515 million.
CGI Federal, Inc.,(CGI) a wholly-owned U.S. operating subsidiary of CGI Group Inc.,(NYSE: GIB; TSX: GIB.A) today announced that it was one of 8 large business IT service providers selected by the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to bid on up to US$4 BILLION in work to be awarded under CMS's Enterprise Systems Development (ESD) IDIQ contract.
To claim that every contract awarded to CGI since 2010 is associated with Obamacare is ridiculous...AND, the $515 million figure doesn't even exist.
