CGI wins $283M European Parliament contract
Montreal-based company to provide maintenance on parliament's information system
LUXEMBOURG CITY, Luxembourg—The European Parliament has awarded a contract worth up to 196 million euros, approximately $283 million, to CGI.
CGI will lead a pan-European consortium that includes Luxembourg-based Intrasoft International in the development and maintenance of the European Parliament’s information production system. The company said 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.
“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,” Jean-Michel Baticle, president of CGI in France, Morocco and Luxembourg, said.
CGI said it 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.
