CGI Federal Inc. will provide software and operations maintenance support for the Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Research and Development under a task order worth about $19 million.
Under ORD's Software Testing, Implementation and Production Support program, CGI Federal will provide operations and maintenance support for the office's more than 150 administrative and scientific management systems.
The project work includes business, technical and scientific services. It also covers applications and scientific support; technical and business consulting services; and infrastructure management.
Beyond that, the contract calls for CGI to assist EPA's research to prevent risk, pollution and harm to human health.
More than $100 million in task orders are expected be awarded under this seven-year EPA Office of Research and Development Systems Engineering and Specialized Scientific Support Blanket Purchase Agreement, CGI said.
The task order is in addition to an $83 million award announced earlier this month for CGI Federal to upgrade EPA's financial system and then manage its information technology hosting and applications.
CGI Federal is based in Fairfax, Va. Parent company CGI of Montreal ranks No. 74
on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
