(NYSE: PRSP), a leading U.S. government services provider, announced today that it has received a follow-on task order award to continue work on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Virtual Data Center Prime (VDCP) contract to host and improve efficiency of Medicare Part A and Part B Common Working File (CWF) claims processing.
