CGI-AMS financial management solution meets new government certification Momentum(R) 6.0 receives certification.

FAIRFAX, Virginia, March 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CGI-AMS Inc., the wholly-owned U.S. operating subsidiary of CGI Group Inc. (CGI) (TSX: GIB.SV.A; NYSE: GIB), announced today that CGI-AMS's financial management system, Momentum 6.0, has been certified by the U.S. Government's Financial Systems Integration Office (formerly the U.S. Government's Joint Financial Management Improvement Program) as meeting its requirements.

The Financial Systems Integration Office sets the financial management standards required to implement objectives of the President's Management Agenda, which specifically identifies improving financial performance as one of five government-wide goals to enhance federal management. Release 6.0 combines the robust functional capabilities of Momentum with the latest in Web technology. This technology upgrade greatly improves the system's interactions and navigation techniques and provides the federal financial management community with efficient tools to continue to improve its financial performance.

"This certification demonstrates CGI-AMS's continued commitment to the Momentum solution and provides a alternative expressly designed for government by people with deep federal financial management domain knowledge," said Donna Morea, CGI-AMS president. "Through Momentum 6.0, our federal agency customers will be able to set a new standard of excellence when it comes to delivering financial information that is crucial to their decision-making processes."

Momentum 6.0 extends beyond the government's core financial system requirements to support complex federal financial management activities, including the full federal budget cycle and the complete federal acquisition life cycle. Since 1985, more than 60 customers have deployed CGI-AMS's federal financial management systems, and with this certification all of these customers now have a clear upgrade path to the Web-enabled Momentum 6.0.
