CGI wins contract to develop electronic procurement system for Navy and Marines

05 August 2019 2 min. read

IT consultancy CGI has won a contract to create an electronic procurement system (ePS) for the US Navy and Marine Corps.

The 10-year, $222.9 million contract was awarded by the Space and Naval War Systems Command (SPAWAR) Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems.

CGI will be tasked with developing an end-to-end contract writing system that will allow for standardized, comprehensive contracts and procurement management for services, supplies, construction, and grants.

CGI will use its Momentum Acquisitions software as the base for the solution, which will electronically process contract requirements for the Navy and Marine Corps. The software has the ability to interface with other Department of Defense (DoD), federal, financial, and industry systems.

According to CGI, Momentum Acquisitions allows for reduced costs, significant centralization, auditability, interoperability, and security. The commercial off-the-shelf procurement solution was specifically designed for federal acquisition leaders, contracting officers, managers, and administrators, and is compliant with all federal acquisition regulations.

The software spans the entire acquisition lifecycle, from planning and sourcing to post-award, contract management, and closeout.

Momentum Acquisition was previously used to develop the Army Contract Writing System (ACWS) after CGI was awarded a contract in 2017. The ACWS provides the US Army with a single contract writing system for a standardized acquisition process.

With the new contract with the Navy and Marines, Momentum Acquisitions will support more than half of DoD contract spending on services, products, major weapons systems, and grants.

"We're pleased to provide the Navy and Marine Corps with our Momentum Acquisitions solution to modernize their contract writing enterprise," CGI Federal president Tim Hurlebaus, said. "We believe that our proven technical and management approach will help deliver a user-friendly, fully interoperable, secure and auditable ePS that meets their diverse and emerging stakeholder requirements and look forward to working collaboratively with Navy personnel on this all-important deployment."

Montreal-based CGI deals with US agencies through its American-based subsidiary CGI Federal, which provides solutions for defense, civilian, healthcare, and intelligence missions.
