Luxembourg City - After completing its quadrennial international invitation to tender, the European Parliament awarded a contract worth up to 196 million euros to CGI (NYSE: GIB) (TSX: GIB.A). Under the contract, CGI will lead a pan-European consortium that includes Luxembourg-based Intrasoft International S.A. The contract, which was awarded by the European Parliament’s Directorate-General for Innovation and Technological Support, will cover an initial two-year period and includes an option for three one-year renewals. It aims to effectively contribute to the development and maintenance of the European Parliament’s information production systems.

The framework agreement also applies to certain agencies and institutions of the European Union (Court of Justice, Court of Auditors, Economic and Social Committee, Committee of the Regions, European Aviation Safety Agency, European Ombudsman, European Data Protection Supervisor, and Translation Centre for the Bodies of the European Union).

“We are proud to have been selected for this contract, as it reflects our commitment and quality of service, which form the foundation of the support we have been providing European institutions for over a decade,” said Jean-Michel Baticle, President of CGI in France, Morocco and Luxembourg.

CGI will be responsible for the design, development, rollout and maintenance of some of the production information systems that support the Parliament’s activities and administrative functions. CGI will be particularly involved in the design of new information systems that are based on technologies selected by the institutions involved. It will also focus on the corrective maintenance of systems and IT applications.read more
