IRS Hired For Millions The Same Canadian Company That Botched The Obamacare Website

Here's one for the WTH file.

Remember the Canadian company CGI Federal that messed up, big time,, the Obamacare website? They were eventually fired, with good reason, but apparently the IRS has now hired the IT company for the Obamacare tax program for a whopping $4.46 million!

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.
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 rest on Daily Caller, which lists all the various failures with the website.

And what are we doing hiring a Canadian company? No offense to my Canuck buddies, but don't we have a competent IT company that can handle the job?
