    FAIRFAX, VA, Nov. 6 /CNW Telbec/ - CGI Federal, Inc., a wholly-owned U.S.
operating subsidiary of CGI Group Inc. (NYSE:   GIB; TSX: GIB.A), 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."
