Nov 06, 2007 (08:11 AM EST)
FAIRFAX, VA, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - CGI Federal, Inc., a wholly-owned U.S. operating subsidiary of CGI Group Inc. , today announced that it has been awarded a US$10 million contract from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to provide maintenance and operations support for the IRS's Filing and Payment Compliance (F&PC) implementation. The award represents an expansion of work that CGI has been doing at the IRS since March 2005.
The IRS began the implementation of F&PC using CGI's Computer Assisted Collection System for Government (CACS-G) to address filing and compliance cases. The F&PC implementation allows the IRS to address the annual volume of cases and reduce the growth of delinquent accounts. As a result, the IRS is realizing increased case resolution due to the improved efficiencies offered by the F&PC system.
"CGI is pleased that the IRS continues to have confidence in our ability to provide them with state-of-the-art solutions and services," said George Schindler, President, CGI Federal. "Our track record at the IRS has proven that we consistently assign the right resources to achieve successful completion of every task."
