CGI has been selected by the General Services Administration for the multi-award ASTRO Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity contract.

This 10-year award provides CGI the opportunity to compete for task orders with an unlimited ceiling value to research, develop, support, maintain and operate manned, unmanned and optionally manne platforms and robotics, such as satellites, launch vehicles and related services.

Known for its ability to build complex, mission-critical space software systems and integration of complex hardware systems with the right software solutions, CGI is a recognized thought leader in space security and applications, and is considered a European leader in the ground segment of military satellite communications.

"We leveraged our long history of helping clients implement complex, mission-critical space software systems, as well as other software development and systems integration work for this win," stated CGI Federal President Stephanie Mango.

"With our space work long established in Europe, we're just beginning to build our presence here in North America, and we're thrilled to bring our proven track record and solutions to the U.S. federal government market."

GSA developed the ASTRO master contract primarily to help the U.S. Department of Defense streamline the acquisition process for the military's combatant commands.

The master contract opens acquisition to all federal agencies through FEDSIM, a provider of assisted acquisition services for federal agencies, to obtain manned and unmanned platforms and services for the next 10 years, with no maximum dollar ceiling.

"With a 40-plus year track record of supporting the space industry and serving the federal government, CGI is pleased to bring its thought leadership and technical expertise to deliver services through GSA's ASTRO contract," stated Mike Pullen, Vice-President, Consulting Services for CGI Federal.

CGI Federal Inc., a wholly-owned U.S. operating subsidiary of CGI Inc., is dedicated to partnering with federal agencies to provide solutions for defense, civilian, healthcare and intelligence missions.

Founded in 1976, CGI is among the largest IT and business consulting services firms in the world.
