News : European Commission Selects CGI to Oversee Quality Assurance and Control
Brussels, Belgium, Sept, 2017 -- CGI (NYSE: GIB) (TSX: GIB.A) has been selected by the European Commission for a five-year contract to oversee IT quality assurance, quality control, and project management services for the Commission's Directorate General for Taxation and Customs Union (DG TAXUD). CGI's oversight of the IT systems and activities managed by or on behalf of DG TAXUD, will help to reduce risks, ensure operational excellence and support the DG TAXUD in successfully pursuing a number of strategic initiatives ahead.
The DG TAXUD develops and enforces the taxation and customs policies of the European Union (EU), playing an active role in preparing for the EU's enlargement and supporting a number of customs agreements with non-EU member states. CGI previously partnered with the DG TAXUD from 2005-2014, providing similar quality assurance services.

Under the new contract, CGI will define the quality standards against which other IT suppliers for the DG TAXUD are measured based on industry best practices and market trends, as well as maintain and evolve its overall IT quality management system (Tempo). Through this work, the DG TAXUD will benefit from enhanced taxation and customs procedures for citizens, businesses and other government parties, more effective fraud prevention, improved cross-border fluidity of goods, and support for strategic initiatives, including the EU's enlargement.
"We are very proud to be chosen to serve as the DG TAXUD's quality assurance partner for taxation and customs," said Vice-President Ben Vicca, who oversees CGI's operations in Belgium. "Systems quality is critical to the DG TAXUD's mission. Most of its IT systems are trans-European systems, spanning all EU countries, and their users are national administrations that govern major taxation and customs programs, trader communities and Commission services staff. The timely development, effective maintenance and ongoing evolution of these systems are essential to meeting legal and regulatory requirements and ensuring the smooth operation of complex taxation and customs programs. We look forward to helping the DG TAXUD fulfill its mission through our quality assurance expertise and end-to-end services."
