Central and federal government

Modernizing complex operations for better government

With increasing pressure on budgets, central and federal governments seek to maximize revenues and efficiency, and reduce costs, without sacrificing the quality of public services for citizens. All of this requires technology that automates processes, integrates data from numerous sources, and adapts easily to change.

Since 1976, CGI has helped governments modernize their programs to meet these needs in defense and intelligence, health and human services, public safety and justice, tax, revenue and collections and space, as well as agriculture, education and environment. Our client experience in North America includes over 100 U.S. federal agency clients and more than 95 Canadian federal clients. In Europe, we work with the European Commission and central governments in 8 countries.

CGI's government-focused offerings improve public accounting, financial management, HR and payroll management, as well as procurement and e-purchasing. We also transform collections and recovery programs with our leading CGI Collections360® for Government solution. Additionally, CGI works with clients in areas such as mobile solutions and big data and help them effectively leverage key technologies such as cloud computing to support transformation programs.
