    FAIRFAX, VA, June 25 /CNW Telbec/ - CGI Group Inc. (TSX: GIB.A;
NYSE:   GIB), a leader in information technology and business process services,
today released version 5.0 of PRISM(R) Audit software, a spend management
analysis solution enabling corporations and governments to view expense

      interface and increased reporting functionality to enhance assessments
      of organization-wide spending and potential savings opportunities from
      sourcing activities; and.

    - Advanced Categorization Taxonomy Support to better manage and customize
      CGI's proprietary purchase categorization taxonomy for each client. It
      also reflects the latest version of the United Nations Standard
      Products and Services Classification.
