CGI Group Inc. has won a $78 million contract from the state of Colorado to modernize, host and manage Colorado’s financial, procurement and budgeting system, the company announced.
“The selection of CGI enables the state of Colorado to comprehensively address the current operations risks of our ageing system while simultaneously upgrading to significantly improve business productivity and usability,” said Kathy Nesbitt, executive director of the Colorado Department of Personnel and Administration.
Under the 12-year contract, CGI will use its managed advantage program to provide secure day-to-day operations management for Colorado’s primary financial system.
“Our built-for-government CGI Advantage ERP cloud capabilities provide our clients with a higher level of service at a lower, and more predictable total cost of ownership than traditional self-managed delivery models,” said Daniel Keene, vice president of the CGI advantage program.
CGI said the State will upgrade to the web-based CGI Advantage™ ERP solution and transition operation of its current systems to the CGI advantage cloud operating in CGI’s secure data center.
“By leveraging CGI’s cloud, we can achieve much needed technical enhancements to the system and a more predictable operating cost over time,” said Kristin Russell, secretary of technology and chief information officer for Colorado.
Additional updates and upgrades to the system are covered under a predictable, fixed price arrangement.
