Creating business value and quality jobs
CGI’s U.S. onshore delivery model provides high-quality, cost-effective IT resources to our clients, while creating good jobs where they are needed most for our nation—including our veteran community. Through this model, we have created more than 1,600 quality jobs and generated hundreds of millions of dollars in economic activity. Across the U.S., CGI has 12,000 consultants in 80 offices. Globally, we are 77,000 strong.
Our U.S. onshore IT services delivery centers—in Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, Maine, Virginia and Wisconsin —are an integral part of CGI’s global delivery model that includes onshore, nearshore and offshore options to suit client needs. The centers offer full-service application development, maintenance, testing and integration services, as well as business process outsourcing. These high-quality IT services are provided at costs significantly below averages for major metro areas, saving 20% to 30% in the first year and beyond.
CGI’s onshore delivery model is based on true partnerships between industry, government and higher education to create magnets for technology jobs and keep skilled technology expertise in the U.S. Our seven onshore centers are within 1-2 time zones from any contiguous U.S. location, effectively supporting projects requiring close collaboration, immediate communication and tight timelines.
In a managed services arrangement, clients want assurance that knowledgeable program and technical staff will be available not just for today, but also over time. CGI’s U.S. onshore centers are staffed by a highly educated and skilled talent pool that has a lower-than-average attrition rate. Employees are hired through a feeder system of high-caliber colleges and universities, as well as strong technical programs and recruiting networks including veteran and military family outreach. All employees must meet CGI’s rigorous standards and follow specific procedures for knowledge retention and transfer.
