Stockwatch Daily - - FRONT PAGE - Mr. Lorne Gor­ber re­ports

CGI GROUP Inc. has been se­lected to par­tic­i­pate in an in­def­i­nite de­liv­ery/in­def­i­nite quan­tity (ID/IQ) con­tract to sup­port the U.S. Army Com­mu­ni­ca­tions-Elec­tron­ics Com­mand (CECOM) with re­gard to its re­spon­sive strate­gic sourc­ing for ser­vices (RS3) re­quire­ments. RS3 car­ries a $37.4-bil­lion ceil­ing with a 10-year or­der­ing pe­riod (a five-year base with a five-year optional or­der­ing pe­riod). The per­for­mance-based con­tract will pro­vide knowl-

edge-based pro­gram sup­port ser­vices for com­mand, con­trol, com­mu­ni­ca­tions, com­put­ers, in­tel­li­gence, sur­veil­lance and re­con­nais­sance (C4ISR) or­ga­ni­za­tions through­out the fed­eral govern­ment. Th­ese ser­vices in­clude en­gi­neer­ing, re­search, de­vel­op­ment, test and eval­u­a­tion (RDT&E), lo­gis­tics, ac­qui­si­tion and strate­gic plan­ning, ed­u­ca­tion, and train­ing ser­vices.

Army Con­tract­ing Com­mand — Aberdeen Prov­ing Ground (ACC-APG), the con­tract ad­min­is­tra­tor, pro­vides, in­te­grates and sus­tains C4ISR readi­ness to en­able uni­fied land op­er­a­tions for the U.S. Army. Beyond the army, RS3 will pro­vide cus­tom­ized, best-value so­lu­tions to a di­verse group of or­ga­ni­za­tions that span the spec trum of C4ISR mis­sion re­quire­ments through­out the world, in­clud­ing U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Re­serves and U.S. Na­tional Guard.

RS3 con­sol­i­dates five ex­ist­ing or ex­pir­ing army mul­ti­ple award IDIQs: rapid re­sponse-third gen­er­a­tion (R2-3G), strate­gic ser­vices sourc­ing (S3), tech­ni­cal, ad­min­is­tra­tive and op­er­a­tions sup­port ser­vices (TAOSS), tech­ni­cal in­for­ma­tion en­gi­neer­ing ser­vices (TIES), and war­rior en­abling broad sen­sors (WEBS). Nearly 400 re­sponses were re­ceived for the RS3 op­por­tu­nity by ACC-APG.

“CGI is proud to con­tinue to sup­port the U.S. Army with our world-class, global IT ex­pe­ri­ence,” said CGI se­nior vice-pres­i­dent Keith Quigley. “This new con­tract aligns with CGI’s core ca­pa­bil­i­ties and will al­low for us to pro­vide faster sup­port and eas­ier ac­cess to our IT prod­ucts and ser­vices. We’re proud to say that the army con­sid­ers CGI a trusted part­ner and we plan to con­tinue to sup­port the army’s en­deav­ours through­out this con­tract and beyond.”
