New York City and Wake County, N.C., each have awarded contracts totaling more than $100 million to CGI-AMS for deployment of the company's proprietary enterprise resource planning software.
Under a seven-year contract with New York City, CGI-AMS of Fairfax, Va., will install the latest version of its AMS-Advantage solution to serve as the foundation for governmentwide financial-management and budgetary-control systems.
The New York contract is a public/private partnership structured to let the city influence the solution's improvements, while customizing it by adding functionality that can be shared with other jurisdictions, the company said.
In addition to the customization, the company will provide integration services that connect newer AMS Advantage capabilities to the city's legacy ERP systems. The city plans to extend AMS Advantage to the previously independent Education Department ERP systems.
Under a seven-year contract with Wake County, N.C., the company will deploy AMS Advantage to handle the county's human resources, finance and budget systems. The company will deliver software, implementation and maintenance services. William Welsh is the deputy editor of
