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.

CGI will deliver a range of services across 12 broad areas, including training operations management. The one-year contract has options that can be extended up to three years. Barb Fast, CGI’s vice-president for army and defence intelligence programs, said the contract expands its partnership with the training and doctrine command.

“(It) requires sophisticated capabilities in technology and training-rooted in deep mission understanding-in order to prepare soldiers for the complex operational environments they face today and tomorrow,” said Fast, a retired US Army major general.
