Jan. 10 (Bloomberg) — CGI Group Inc., the company that built the main Patient Protection and Affordable Care website, will be replaced next month when its contract with the U.S. government expires, a person familiar with the decision said.

The Obama administration intends to sign a contract with Accenture Plc, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the decision isn’t public.

The Oct. 1 debut of the federal online insurance exchange serving 36 states was plagued by delays, error messages and hang-ups that prevented customers from completing applications. Accenture led construction of California’s better-performing enrollment system.
