CGI to deliver consolidated Operations & Maintenance support to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts
The Administrative Office of the United States Courts (AOUSC) has awarded CGI Federal Inc. (CGI), a wholly-owned U.S. operating subsidiary of CGI Group Inc. (NYSE: GIB) (TSX: GIB.A), an order against an existing Blanket Purchase Agreement to consolidate the Operations & Maintenance (O&M) support for the organization’s Momentum® ERP applications. The order is for one year with four option periods through September 30, 2016, and the current funded value is US$4.4 million.
Under the award, CGI is providing production support, release management, and training. CGI’s consolidated O&M support solution delivers a single point of accountability and streamlined procedures to increase visibility and oversight across applications and their associated integrations. This will standardize business processes across the four Momentum-based applications used by AOUSC to manage critical mission and financial transactions for the nation’s 94 District Courts.
“CGI is pleased to provide the U.S. Courts with a new, consolidated support model,” said Toni Townes-Whitley, Senior Vice-President, CGI. “In today’s tough budget environment, this is a great example of how government can work with industry to re-think technology’s role in delivering more affordable solutions that deliver timely, accurate, and relevant information.”
