CGI Group Inc. has been awarded a 3-year, $91.8 million contract by Public Works and Government Services Canada. The agreement entitles PWGSC to extend the contract by four 1-year extensions. In total, the services provided could achieve a potential contract value of more than $400 million when considering growth and service transformation. The contract is for the provision of engineering and technical management services to the Information Technology Services Branch of PWGSC.

CGI will work with PWGSC’s ITSB to provide the expertise and resources required to maintain and manage ITSB’s government-wide infrastructure domains. In collaboration, ITSB and CGI will evaluate and implement technology enhancements to these operating domains over the life of the agreement to transform current service delivery to a results-based managed services model as part of PWGSC's ITSB Shared Services vision.

“We are delighted to have been recognized for our technology management capabilities,” said Hicham Adra, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, National Capital Region and Western Canada for CGI. “We are proud that our global expertise that has helped other commercial and public sector clients transform their business can be leveraged to assist ITSB.”
