BOSTON (AP) - State Attorney General Maura Healey is investigating the performance of CGI, the Canadian software developer that built the failed website for the Massachusetts Health Connector.

The Boston Globe reports (https://bit.ly/1EdKpx5 ) the Connector, a state agency serving people who don’t get health insurance through an employer, was required to upgrade its website by the Affordable Care Act.

The new site never functioned properly and had to be rebuilt.

State officials acknowledged they received a subpoena in January from the U.S. attorney’s office, seeking Connector documents dating to 2010.

Authorities provided no details, and U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz declined to confirm or deny the investigation.

CGI says it always performed “professionally and ethically,” but was hampered by “delays in critical decision-making, changing priorities, and a lack of technical requirements from the Connector.”
