You didn't need to be an Oracle to see this one coming.
Oregon's crippled Obamacare exchange, which has been unable to enroll any people electronically online as designed, is making moves that could mean the ouster of primary vendor Oracle from future work on the marketplace.
The "transition agreement" that the Cover Oregon exchange signed with Oracle concludes at the end of April and comes a week after Maryland's troubled Obamacare exchange fired its own website contractor.
Cover Oregon also is withholding $25.6 million of the $69.5 million Oracle has claimed for technology development work the company says it did between November 2013 and February 2014.
And Cover Oregon is reserving the right to sue Oracle for any payments the Obamacare exchange has made to the tech company, according to an announcement Monday.
