ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Vangent, Inc., a leading global provider of information management and business process outsourcing solutions, today announced it won subcontracting roles on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Enterprise System Development (ESD) contract.
