NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Tech executive Kurt DelBene, who most recently was president of Microsoft’s key Office division, was tapped by the government Tuesday to oversee the continued efforts to fix the troubled Obamacare website.

Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of Health and Human Services, announced the move. DelBene has agreed to stay on the job through at least the first half of next year, she said.

He will replace Jeff Zients, who was brought in to fix the site after the massive problems that prevented people from being able to sign up for health care coverage after the start of the program on Oct. 1.

Zients has been serving on an interim basis, and he will now become director of the National Economic Council, to which he was named in September.
