Logica, now part of CGI Group Inc. (TSX: GIB.A) (NYSE: GIB), a leading provider of information technology and business process services, has announced that it has won a prestigious National Outsourcing Associations (NOA) Award. CGI won the Business Process Outsourcing Contract of the Year Award for its collaborative work with ELEXON.
The BPO Contract of the Year Award recognises the long-standing and true partnership between Logica, which is now part of CGI, and its client ELEXON, who administer the Balancing and Settlement Code, which governs the wholesale electricity balancing and settlement arrangements for the UK. This includes running operational business processes, hosting and operating the central balancing and settlement systems and network used by the electricity supply and distribution industry, the meter reading process to support the central settlement functions and a service desk for ELEXON’s customers. The strength of the relationship was also demonstrated by the recent early extension of the BPO contract.
Tim Gregory, President of CGI in the UK said, “The National Outsourcing Association Awards bring together the best of the industry so we are delighted the strength of our client delivery has been recognised. Our team is focused on delivering excellent business processes to meet Elexon’s needs and this award demonstrates that their hard work has delivered an unparalleled service.”
