Reports: FBI Is Investgating Oregon’s Botched Obamacare Rollout


The FBI is making inquiries about the failed launch of Oregon’s Obamacare website, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.

The exact nature and scope of the investigation is not yet clear. The Journal reported that the FBI had already interviewed several people. The Oregonian and KATU first broke the story.

Oregon had one of the worst websites launches among the 14 states that constructed their own Obamacare marketplace. Its first director has resigned, and the state plans to move to the federal in 2015.

Oracle, a California-based software company, was the lead contractor on the project, for which Oregon received more than $300 million in federal funding.

The inspector general of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is also probing the site’s launch, according to The Oregonian.
