CGI has received a contract from the US Army Sustainment Command (ASC) to continue support for the Integrated Materiel Management Operations System (IMMOS) over the next five years.
Under the contract, which includes a one-year base period and four option years, the company will continue software development and support IMMOS application suite.
The base year has been incrementally funded at $3.1m, and the contract will reach a maximum ceiling of $55.8m, if all options are exercised.
CGI senior vice-president Pat Dougherty said: "We are gratified to see our logistics systems expertise recognised and intend to continue supporting this vital client with high quality service and support for years to come."
The company has developed and supported IMMOS logistics software applications since 1994.
System innovations during this timeframe include real time care of supplies in storage (COSIS) and warehouse management functionality, radio-frequency identification tag and network management tools, business intelligence, accountability, inventory and maintenance reporting, as well as automated equipment hand-off and receipt-back capability.
The ASC uses the IMMOS suite to execute asset tracking and maintenance management tasks for army prepositioned stocks, while helping to ensure that the deploying units receive the right equipment at the right time to complete their missions.
The army should be able to track and identify equipment stored and serviced at designated facilities across the globe, to successfully perform missions ranging from warfighting to humanitarian relief.
Work under the contract is scheduled to be performed in Virginia, Illinois, Sierra Army Depot, California, South Carolina, Alabama, as well as at multiple locations worldwide, including Italy, Germany, Qatar, Kuwait, Korea, Japan, and Afghanistan, with an estimated completion in July 2020.
