The House’s chief investigator said Tuesday he has issued subpoenas to Quality Software Services Inc., demanding documents that will show whether the contractor hired to build the federal Obamacare website took precautions on data security.

Rep. Darrell E. Issa, California Republican and chairman of the House oversight committee, said that given the reports that HealthCare.gov wasn’t fully tested before it went live, that raises questions about whether the site can protect the sensitive data consumers are entering when they try to sign up for health plans.

The website has faced numerous problems, and QSSI has been tapped as the general contractor appointed to fix the site.

Mr. Issa said he is seeking all correspondence between QSSI employees and the Obama administration.

He said he had sent a letter to 11 contractors who helped build HealthCare.gov seeking documents and had warned them that a failure to voluntarily turn materials over would result in a subpoena.
