CGI wins $63M extension for ERP work

The company continues work on Los Angeles County's financial and human resource application modernization project.

CGI Group Inc. won a $63 million contract extension to continue modernizing the enterprise financial and human resources applications for the county of Los Angeles.

The extension is for phase four of the modernization project using AMS Advantage, the company’s enterprise resource planning solution. Phase four is for 10 years.

CGI has been working with the county since 2004. During this phase, the company will implement additional AMS Advantage functionality with a goal of enhancing the flow of information and data transparency, CGI said.

The county also will install CGI’s vendor self-service module for use by the county’s 255,000 vendors.

“While many other government entities have failed or faced delays and cost overruns, Los Angeles County and CGI have achieved significant success implementing our ERP system on-time and on-budget while also eliminating numerous legacy systems and their related costs,” said Robert Davis, assistant auditor-controller of Los Angeles County.
