Toronto IT outfit to work on $37.4B military project
CGI Group to participate in U.S. Army contract
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.”
We seek Safe Harbor.
