business requirements of the County," said Jon Fullinwider, Chief Information
Officer, Los Angeles County. "CGI assigned an outstanding team of experienced
professionals who were extremely knowledgeable of government system
implementation challenges and were deeply committed to the success of the

timely delivery of the eCAPS project on schedule and within budget."
