Serco Inc., a Herndon, VA-based provider of professional, technology, and management services, announced today that the Company has been awarded a new contract to deliver professional medical coding compliance services to support all Air Force Medical Service (AFMS) military treatment facilities. The four-and-a-half year contract is valued at $11.7 million.
