Probably worth checking if the close relationship between Michelle Obama and a top exec with the firm, played any role in this sole source no bid contract.

Federal Procurement Regs. would look down seriously on any undue influences, relationships, etc.

By Eric Eyre

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The main contractor behind the problem-plagued federal health insurance exchange website is the same Canadian company that has a $110 million contract to design a computer system that will manage all West Virginia state government accounts.

But state officials say CGI Group Inc. has assigned separate divisions to the state and federal projects.

CGI's Public Sector group is handling the West Virginia state government computer system overhaul -- also known as "WV OASIS" and "Enterprise Resource Planning."
