On July 16 of this year, Sarah Kliff posted a prescient piece on the Washington Posts Wonkblog. The post, Meet Serco, the private firm getting $1.2 billion to process your Obamacare application, reported that 90 percent of Sercos U.S. business is with the federal government and that the 25-year-old firm pretty much owes its existence to government contracting. In this case, Serco won a contract that will pay it $114 million in 2013 and that eye-popping number of $1.2 billion over the next five years. According to one outside study, its the largest single contract for implementing the
Kliff also noted that Sercos experience is in paper-pushing, not healthcare. Serco is a British company, but has been doing business in the U.S. for nearly a quarter century. Serco lobbyist Alan Hill emphasized to Kliff that the U.S. arm operates as a separate company with a strict

Yeah, enter your personal information on the ObamaCare website and give these crooks access to it. BTW, what's with the Obama Regime awarding huge contracts to foreign corporations?
The communists Democratic Party with its leader King Obama is the most corrupt bunch of asses this Country has ever had in its life. Trillions will have gone down the toilet and we will get nothing but a dictatorship unless we change course and NOW, not next year but now. Don’t think we can do it.
Repeal the unconstitutional POS. Impeach the communist bastard!!
I’ll vote for that!

Serco and CGI, much like BAE Systems (which has billions of contracts with DOD and the intel community but is itself a British Company) all have subsidiaries that are American based and run by Americans.
The British, or Canadian version of these firms might as well be totally different companies because of the multiple walls and silos these firms have up between the US based companies and the foreign owners.
Another example of low information, everyone is an expert on Federal contracting, in your post.
Reads like a CIA front company.
Serco is not a CIA cover company.
Those companies generally have multi names (McClater and Associates is a popular one the agency likes to use) and have no foreign connections.
Serco is your run of the mill Federal contractor
Thanks for the clarification. So the CIA has never opened up shop in a foreign land ? Thought that was a given.
They certainly have, but Serco is *not* a CIA front.
CIA front operations tend to be very low key, things you would forget easily. They wouldn’t be a 1.2B dollar company, they’d be much smaller, private, and on the down low. They do not want anything high profile or anything that draws attention
