S.i. Systems will work with SIGMA Competency Centre, Public Works' online support system for enterprise resource planning to help expand the system that supports financial, material and project management.
The contract, which S.i. Systems won through a competitive bidding process, became effective at the end of last month and will run for three years with the option of two additional years.
S.i. Systems is one of the largest suppliers of consulting services to the federal government, providing more than $30 million of services every year, said Brian Brady, managing director of the Ottawa office.
Local clients include the RCMP, Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Transport Canada and the Department of National Defence.
Currently, 350 consultants work for the Ottawa office, and although there are no immediate plans for expansion, Mr. Brady said that is the long-term goal.
"We've grown quickly over the last few years, and our plan is to continue to do that," he said.
The Canadian-owned organization was founded in Calgary in 1994 and opened its Ottawa office in 2002. Its yearly revenues are $230 million, Mr. Brady said.
S.i. Systems undertook another $3.5-million contract from Public Works in November of 2011 with the department's information technology services branch, which the company is currently fulfilling.
