Doherty to lead ACS government group

Affiliated Computer Services Inc. has named Joseph Doherty executive vice president and group president of its Government Solutions Group, in charge of ACS' government business units, including health care, federal solutions, government constituent services, and government administration and operations.

ACS is the largest provider of business process outsourcing services in the government sector, including more than $7.5 billion in beneficiary payments through its electronic payment card or stored value card services. The company also supports more than 23 million Medicaid recipients, processing nearly 550 million Medicaid health care claims annually, company officials said.

Doherty, who will be responsible for the operation and growth of a line of business that supports more than 1,700 state and local government entities, will report to Tom Burlin, executive vice president and chief operating officer.

Before joining ACS, Doherty spent 10 years in leadership positions at Computer Sciences Corp., following a 20-year career in the Navy, first as an enlisted computer systems specialist and then nine years as a communications officer. Most recently, Doherty was president of the Americas Division in CSC's Global Outsourcing Services Group, leading a multibillion dollar outsourcing strategy operation with more than 17,000 employees.

ACS, based in Dallas, ranks No. 68 on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
