The company will install its Web-based enterprise resource planning solution to modernize the city's finance, procurement, human resources and performance budgeting systems.
CGI will also install a new work-order processing system, using IBM Corp.'s Maximo software to modernize the operating requirements of the city and its utility division, City Water, Light and Power, CGI said.
The award continues a nearly three-decade relationship with the city, said John Roggemann, vice president at CGI.
