    FAIRFAX, VA, Sept. 10 /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 was selected by the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise
Oversight (OFHEO) to continue work on OFHEO's Examiner Workstation (xWorks)
under a GSA IT Schedule Contract Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). The BPA
runs for five years (including option periods) and covers further enhancements
to xWorks, along with operations and maintenance support.
    xWorks is a business process management application that automates many
of the manual processing steps OFHEO Examiners use to document their
assessments of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. CGI has been working with OFHEO to
implement and enhance xWorks since 2005. The initial phase of the project
included design and implementation of the system, including automating
business processes, records and case management, front-end capture, and a
portal-based web 2.0 interface. Since then, CGI has helped OFHEO complete an
examinations business process reengineering effort in parallel with regular
software release cycles, and ongoing infrastructure and application management
support. Additionally, CGI Federal has supported application security, aiding
OFHEO's Certification & Accreditation activities and clearance.
    "OFHEO has been a valued client of CGI since 2005, and we are pleased
that they continue to put their trust in us in the development and support of
xWorks," said George Schindler, President of CGI Federal. "The BPA will allow
CGI to continue providing services which help OFHEO achieve its mission."
