The Obama administration has an information-technology problem, launching expensive projects that become dated by the time they are finally completed, according to Jeffrey Zients, a consultant who joined the White House in 2009.

Zients is now leading the administration's effort to fix, the troubled federal exchange site that is preventing consumers from enrolling en masse in Affordable Care Act coverage.


He has told reporters he is confident the administration will meet the Nov. 30 deadline to have running smoothly for "the vast majority of users." His leadership on the project could determine the political fortunes of Obama and other prominent Democrats who have been vocal about their support of the president's legacy initiative, The New York Times reports.
