FAIRFAX, VA—CGI Group’s American subsidiary has been awarded a US$143-million analytical and technical services contract by the US Army to help prepare soldiers at its schools and training centres across the country. The Montreal-based IT company said CGI Federal will support the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command and help the Army train soldiers for complex operating environments.
