    FAIRFAX, VA, Feb. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - CGI Federal, a wholly-owned U.S.
operating subsidiary of CGI Group Inc. (TSX: GIB.A; NYSE:   GIB), today
announced that the latest release of its financial, procurement and budget
formulation software solution for the U.S. federal government,
Momentum(R) 6.2, received official certification from the Office of Management
and Budget's Financial Systems Integration Office (FSIO) at the General
Services Administration. Over 100 U.S. federal government organizations
currently use Momentum.
    Momentum 6.2 is offered as a commercial off the shelf (COTS) product, and
as a hosted managed services solution in CGI's Shared Service Center for
agencies seeking to implement under the Federal Financial Management Line of
Business (FMLOB) initiative. FSIO's certification of Momentum 6.2 ensures that
it meets all mandatory federal financial system requirements and can be
deployed by federal government agencies as part of the FMLOB program.
Momentum 6.2 is one of only seven FSIO certified software products.
    "Momentum 6.2 builds on CGI's established leadership in financial
management software and hosted managed services for the U.S. federal
government," said Donna Ryan, Senior Vice-President at CGI. "This latest
version of Momentum applies Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) technologies
to help agencies achieve their compliance, accountability and security goals."

    Some of the features of Momentum 6.2 include:

    - Enabling standardization - Momentum 6.2 provides a number of features
      in support of OMB initiatives to increase standardization and
      interoperability across the federal government such as Web services and
      enhanced service oriented architecture (SOA), evolving CGAC standards,
      and government-wide accounting initiatives.

    - Reducing Cost and Risk - The latest release of Momentum includes the
      Rapid Momentum Implementation methodology that distills CGI's 30 years
      of implementation expertise into an implementation toolkit which
      includes a configured Momentum database to reduce costs and facilitate
      agency standardization.

    - Improving performance and efficiency - Momentum 6.2 is integrated with
      FedBid, the market-leading reverse auction site allowing agencies to
      streamline and maximize value for commodity buys. It also incorporates
      a configurable user experience to increase the efficiency of each user.

    - Protection of Personally Identifiable Identification (PII)- Momentum
      has enhancements such as distributed system security, and utilities to
      purge all PII from non-production environments.
