The administration seems to have turned down offers by Amazon and Microsoft to help repair the problem-ridden federal exchange website, Reuters reports.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, sent a letter to several tech companies asking about their involvement in Health and Human Service's new "tech surge" to fix HealthCare.govThe Republican-led Oversight Committee released some of the responses, which an Issa spokeswoman said "raise even more questions about who at HHS is doing what to solve the problems" with the website.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced last week that QSSI would take over as lead contractor for the "tech surge." Issa has subpoenaed the contractor for documents related to its contract.
