CGI Federal Inc. will provide new financial management software and other services to the Federal Communications Commission under a 10-year award worth about $25 million.
CGI will replace its existing Federal Financial System software with its Momentum financial management software and Financial Management Line of Business hosting solution. The upgrade is part of FCC's Core Financial System Replacement initiative.
The contractor will install the Momentum Financials software suite, including Momentum Performance Budgeting and Momentum Data Warehouse. CGI will perform all integration and implementation activities, hosting, application management and ongoing operations and maintenance, company officials said. The financial system application will be housed at CGI's Phoenix data center.
In addition to providing full financial management services, CGI's solution has the added benefit of managing FCC's annual regulatory and application processing fees. The company's fee calculation, billing, collecting and reporting functions will help the regulatory agency comply with federal financial and regulatory rules as well as improve customer service through consolidated licensee management.
FCC joins the General Services Administration, U.S. Courts, Environmental Protection Agency, National Transportation Safety Board, Broadcasting Board of Governors and the Corporation for National and Community Service, whose financial systems applications are hosted by CGI, company officials said.
CGI Federal is the U.S. unit of CGI Group Inc. The parent company, based in Montreal, ranks No. 73
on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
