This isn’t parody. Bobby Jindal welcome CGI Federal, the company responsible for the total meltdown that was the first month of the Affordable Care Act launch.

 

We all recall Jindal’s knee-slapper during the roll-out, right?

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Sunday openly mocked the Obama administration’s troubled rollout of itsHealthCare.gov website but did suggest a fix — sort of.

“Maybe they’ll bring in Al Gore, the guy who says he invented the Internet,” Mr. Jindal said during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

Now, Jindal is rewarding the incompetent contractor that caused Healthcare.gov to fall flat out of the gate:

CGI Federal executive James Peake announced in a press conference Monday that the company has selected the UL Research Park to establish a technology center…

CGI, the fifth-largest IT company in the world, selected Lafayette after a two-year nationwide site-selection process, according to a press release. The total investment, including government incentives and contributions, is about $25 million…

LED offered the company a competitive incentive package that includes a performance-based grant of $5.3 million to reimburse personnel relocation, recruitment, training and building operating costs. CGI will receive the comprehensive workforce solutions of LED FastStart and is expected to utilize the state’s Quality Jobs and Digital Interactive Media and Software Development incentives.

Local incentives for the project will include a grant not to exceed $1.1 million from LEDA, for the reimbursement of relocation costs and operating costs in a temporary location.

Ah, good deal. Jindal gives millions to incompetent Canadian contractor while mocking their incompetence.
