Initiative to provide knowledge-based program support services for C4ISR organizations via the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM)
FAIRFAX, VA, Oct. 12, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - CGI (NYSE: GIB) (TSX: GIB.A) announced that it has been selected to participate in an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract to support the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) with regards to its Responsive Strategic Sourcing for Services (RS3) requirements. RS3 carries a $37.4 billion ceiling with a 10-year ordering period (a 5-year base with a 5-year optional ordering period). The performance-based contract will provide knowledge-based program support services for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) organizations throughout the federal government. These services include engineering, research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E), logistics, acquisition and strategic planning, education and training services.
Army Contracting Command – Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG), the contract administrator, provides, integrates and sustains C4ISR readiness to enable Unified Land Operations for the U.S. Army. Beyond the Army, RS3 will provide customized, best-value solutions to a diverse group of organizations that span the spectrum of C4ISR mission requirements throughout the world, including Navy, Air Force, Reserves and National Guard.
RS3 consolidates five existing or expiring Army multiple award IDIQs: Rapid Response-Third Generation (R2-3G), Strategic Services Sourcing (S3), Technical, Administrative and Operations Support Services (TAOSS), Technical Information Engineering Services (TIES) and Warrior Enabling Broad Sensors (WEBS). Nearly 400 responses were received for the RS3 opportunity by ACC-APG.

"This new contract aligns with CGI's core capabilities and will allow for us to provide faster support and easier access to our IT products and services.
