The Oregon Health Authority just hired Deloitte Consulting to serve as the "system integrator" for the transfer to healthcare.gov and to transition the former Cover Oregon website to serve Medicaid patients.

 

Ten contractors were asked to submit bids and three did.

 

Amy Faver with Cover Oregon says Deloitte stood out from the rest.

 

"For Deloitte, the client references were very strong.  They've done this  kind of work with other states.  And since we are doing two projects at once, their plan was very clear.  Their staffing model had their top staff on this project, people with a lot of experience.  We made the choice of who would have the best success at getting us where we need to be in November."

 

A panel of state and independent reviewers selected Deloitte.

 

Their 18 million dollar contract is very specific about what must be delivered before the state will pay for it.
