IT and business consulting service CGI Federal Inc. has secured a five-year task order from the Department of Homeland Security to continue the development of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ digital immigration records systems.
Valued at up to $159 million, the award under the Alliant 2 contract vehicle’s Records Management Support Services task order will allow CGI Federal to play a pivotal role in the ongoing modernization of USCIS records, employing agile development teams to create and manage technology as part of a multi-year initiative.
DHS seeks to transform the immigration benefits claim process into a seamless, fully electronic system. Through the CGI contract, it will facilitate USCIS’ agile development, systems integration and infrastructure services with the objective of conserving resources and enhancing the accuracy of immigration claims while reducing processing times.
“We are proud to continue our longstanding relationship with USCIS and look forward to extending our role as a mission-critical partner in the digital transformation of the nation’s immigration process,” Clay Goldwein, senior vice president and National Security and Justice Business Unit lead at CGI Federal, said in a statement.
“CGI Federal’s ongoing innovation on behalf of USCIS ensures its systems and solutions meet current requirements and are ready for future growth and evolution.”
