CGI (NYSE: GIB) (TSX: GIB.A) announced that it has been awarded several contracts totalling US$92.5M from the U.S. Army to provide varying degrees of support across four separate Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) programs. Each of the contracts was awarded to CGI as part of a subcontracting team to the incumbent prime contractor and each are five years in length if all option years were to be exercised.
AMCOM develops and delivers responsive aviation, missile and calibration materiel readiness to the U.S. Army in order to optimize joint warfighter capabilities at the point of need. As a Life Cycle Management Command, AMCOM is dedicated to providing integrated engineering, logistics and contracting to more than 90 major aviation and missile systems throughout their lifecycles, which accounts for roughly half the systems in the U.S. Army.
The contract awards are spread over four different programs within AMCOM:
- In conjunction with its partners, CGI will provide the Precision Fires Rocket and Missile Systems (PFRMS) Project Office with acquisition process and software development support. Specifically, CGI has been tasked to provide continued services for the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) Precision Guided Munitions acquisition and programmatic process. CGI will also support the acquisition process and software development for MLRS launchers as well as the MLRS documentation configuration management process.
- CGI will continue to assist the AMCOM Logistics Center (ALC) with Reliability Improvement through Failure Identification and Reporting (RIMFIRE) process support. The RIMFIRE process is a closed-loop system designed to identify and track root equipment failure causes, determine candidates for corrective action and verify the effectiveness of corrective actions. Successful identification and correction of design errors, manufacturing defects, improper maintenance and early wear can help improve equipment reliability.
- In continuing a long-standing engagement with the Utility Helicopter Project Management Office (UHPMO), CGI will ensure successful execution of UHPMO acquisition initiatives for the U.S. Army’s UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter program. As part of its solution, CGI will help enable various mission requirements including ongoing research and development, production, sustainment, modifications, retrofit, Foreign Military Sales (FMS), modernization and recapitalization programs in support of the Army’s UH-60 fleet.
- CGI will provide configuration, data management, status accounting, and standardization services for AMCOM’s Research, Development and Engineering Center’s (RDEC) Technical Data Management Division (TDMD) in direct support of AMCOM’s weapon systems and soldiers. As part of the team, CGI will help ensure that TDMD’s technical data is accurate for both configuration management of weapon systems and procurement actions, thereby benefitting the soldier in the field.
“We are honoured to once again be chosen to support the U.S. Army through our continued engagement with these critical AMCOM programs that directly support the warfighter,” said Tim Hurlebaus, President, CGI Federal. “CGI has the subject matter expertise and contract experience to deliver unique insight into these AMCOM programs and processes. Our proven track record demonstrates that our members have time and time again provided both the Army and our teaming partners with responsive and cost-effective services and solutions.”
