In July Serco in the US was given a contract from HHS to set up the warehousing operation to handle applications for Health insurance.  Their corporate offices are located in the UK and this is where the CEO is stepping down.  The link below tells about what they do as far as the company’s broad spectrum of services they provide.

Serco, the services company facing an investigation into its government contracts, has begun an urgent search for a new chief executive after Chris Hyman quit in a desperate attempt to rebuild the company's reputation.

After allegations that Serco overcharged the government for electronic tagging of offenders, the operator of hospitals, prisons and railways around the world needs to improve its relationship with the UK government, which provides 25% of its revenue.

Hyman, who is leaving after 20 years with the firm and 10 years as chief executive, said: "At this time, nothing is more important to me than rebuilding the relationship with our UK government customer. In recent weeks it has become clear to me that the best way for the company to move forward is for me to step back."

The UK and Europe division is to be split in two to focus on the "UK government customers" and the other on activities in the wider public sector. Three new non-executive directors are to be appointed along with a new general counsel. A board committee for corporate responsibility is also to be created.
