U.S. Department of Labor Selects CGI to Support its Cloud-Based Enterprise Case and Content Management PlatformContract is CGI's first award with the U.S. Department of Labor (November 09, 2011)
FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/09/11 -- The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has awarded CGI Federal Inc. (CGI), a wholly-owned U.S. operating subsidiary of CGI Group Inc. (NYSE:GIB)(TSX:GIB.A), a contract to develop and operate a cloud-based case and content management platform.
Under the contract, CGI will plan, design, configure, implement, operate, administer, and maintain a cloud computing-based enterprise case and content management (ECCM) platform for DOL. The platform's initial deployment will be for one of the Department's enforcement agencies providing enhanced electronic document management, records management, case management, business process management, business intelligence, and management reporting capabilities. Having this platform hosted in the cloud will provide DOL significant cost benefits over the next several years.
"We are excited to begin a new partnership with the Department of Labor, especially on a project that will help the agency deliver on the government's cloud-first policy," said Toni Townes-Whitley, Vice-President, CGI. "Like many of our clients, DOL needs a secure cloud-based solution that can scale quickly and cost-effectively to support fluctuations in their workload."
