At CGI, we’re building upon a 40 year history of listening to the needs of our clients, innovating together to create business value, leading the industry to help clients with their digital transformation, and delivering to achieve stakeholders’ long-term success. This 2016 Annual Review showcases how we serve as our clients’ partner and expert of choice via our unique proximity model in helping drive forward their end-to-end digital transformation. End-to-end digital transformation: Through our end-to-end services and solutions, we deliver digital strategies and technologies and connect them to legacy systems to help clients transform how they operate and engage with digital customers and citizens. Client proximity: CGI’s client proximity model fosters deep understanding of clients’ businesses and strong relationships to provide best-fit digital transformation solutions, supported by our global delivery capabilities and in-depth industry and technology expertise.

DREAM INSPIRED. CLIENT DRIVEN. Since our founding in 1976, we’ve seen computers come out of labs and into our offices, our homes and our pockets. We’ve watched our connected world get smaller and smaller, transcending cultures, languages and borders. We’ve seen bubbles, booms and busts — and, through it all, we’ve helped our clients persevere and grow. Today, we help businesses efficiently and securely move the money that moves the goods that benefit people, communities, countries and continents. We help people save for homes and an education, and provide a safe and secure financial future for their families. We help governments meet the everyday needs of their citizens, supporting a backbone of services that enable healthcare, justice and transportation systems. We help clients maximize the technologies that run their business and then help them change their business by moving through the doors the digital world has opened. We accomplish all this and more through our people. Committed and creative, CGI members understand our clients’ business and the technology that drives forward their digital transformation.

Built to grow and last Serge Godin, Founder and Executive Chairman of the Board


George D. Schindler, President and Chief Executive Officer


It’s an extraordinary time to be in business. The digital needs of customers and citizens are bringing about the transformation of commercial and government organizations around the world — and CGI is at the forefront of this change, serving as a leading IT services partner and expert of choice to support our clients’ journeys. As we look ahead, Serge Godin and George D. Schindler share how CGI is best positioned to help our clients transform to become customer-centric, digital enterprises. George was appointed as the third President and CEO in CGI’s 40 year history. How does this change affect CGI’s stakeholders? Serge: When I founded CGI in 1976, my objective was to build a company where our professionals, whom we call members, share in the same CGI Dream: “To create an environment in which we enjoy working together and, as owners, contribute to building a company we can be proud of.” From this ambition, we have built a company that operates based on a uniform set of values, policies, frameworks, processes, operational principles and measures, which make up the CGI Management Foundation. This Foundation provides for the consistent, high-quality execution of our commitments to our three stakeholders — clients, members and shareholders — no matter where CGI operates in the world. George becoming CEO does not represent a change but a continuation of CGI’s ongoing commitment to being the best in the industry — a partner and expert of choice to our clients, a rewarding place in which to build a career for our members, and a long-term profitable investment for our shareholders. With 30 years of experience, George has successfully managed large operations in IT and management consulting. He joined CGI in 2004 and has led our U.S. business, North American operations and, most recently as Chief Operating Officer, all global operations reported to him. I have every confidence that as CEO, George is the right leader at the right time to continue our track record of delivering on our promises to all stakeholders. George: I feel deeply privileged to serve as just the third CEO of CGI — and to do so during such a dynamic time in our industry. Our clients are asking for our help as they work to digitally transform to meet the needs of their customers and citizens, and technology plays a central role in supporting them as it moves from being an enabler to a driver of this change. Digital transformation offers our stakeholders endless opportunities to grow. I thank Serge and the Board for their confidence, and look forward to continuing to execute CGI’s Build and Buy profitable growth strategy and taking CGI forward as clients’ trusted and innovative partner on the digital journey ahead. Another milestone from this year is the publication of the CGI Global 1000, which is an outlook on trends and priorities from more than 1,000 in-person conversations with business and technology client executives. What did we learn and how do the findings help shape our strategy? George: Every year as part of CGI’s strategic planning process, we meet in person with business and technology executives to discuss the trends influencing their industries and their key strategic initiatives. We analyze the findings to develop CGI insights and a comprehensive global outlook that we then share with each participating executive. This year, given the clear and compounding trends over the years surrounding the digital agenda globally, we published a report for the benefit of all existing and prospective clients. This outlook is then reflected in our strategic plans to ensure we are best positioned to meet client demand and, as a result, drive value for all CGI stakeholders.


“ CGI is one of the few global firms with the talent, scale and

end‑to‑end services and solutions necessary to help clients succeed holistically with their digital transformation. ”

In 2016, our clients across the industries we serve said that digital transformation is no longer just an enabler but a driver of their business. More than 70% of leaders cited the pressures from the rapid rise in influence of digital customers and citizens as their top trend. This represents a significant shift in thinking in terms of how clients run, change and grow their organizations. They must modernize and transform today’s legacy assets and connect them to digital business and operating models. Serge: We are the only IT services company that engages in such a comprehensive process to identify the top trends and priorities that are most significant to our clients. We also engage members and shareholders in the strategic planning process, ensuring they have a voice on how to continually advance our strategic goals. These consultations are reflective of our strong culture in which we continuously refine and evolve our strategy to meet the needs of our three stakeholders. In addition to these consultations, we also conduct ongoing satisfaction assessments of each stakeholder group to measure our performance. This ongoing consultation and measurement with a focus on seeking the best equilibrium between our three stakeholders are what produce the best results over the long term. Why is CGI in the best position to serve as clients’ digital transformation partner and expert of choice? George: Clients have a competitive urgency to become digital in a sustainable way. They realize they need to invest in the digital future and transform their organizations across the people, process and technology areas of their business. CGI is one of the few global firms with the talent, scale and end-to-end services and solutions necessary to help clients succeed holistically. Our client proximity model fosters a deep understanding of clients’ businesses and strong relationships to build best-fit innovative digital solutions, supported by our global delivery model that brings forward industry and technology expertise. On the Build side of our strategy, we exploit four strategic levers to help them become digital organizations: • High-end business and IT consulting with a focus on digital • Systems integration to connect legacy assets with digital business and operating models • Transformational outsourcing to improve both how they run and change their organizations • Intellectual property that acts as a digital business accelerator This is an extraordinary time to be in business, and change will continue to happen faster and more expansively than ever before. CGI has all the capabilities required to help clients create a clear, customer-focused vision; a digital-first culture; and an operating model that will deliver accelerated and ongoing value. Serge: The CGI Management Foundation that I discussed earlier is a differentiator and success factor in helping clients transform. Operational discipline is part of CGI’s DNA, and the Foundation has and will continue to serve as a platform for accelerated growth over the years to come. When a client partners with CGI, they can be assured that our model is focused on providing them with the best value, both in terms of project delivery and in bringing forward innovative services and solutions designed specifically to address their industry and market needs. George: On the Buy side, we focus on both transformational deals to further expand our geographic scale and niche acquisitions to strengthen our local proximity metro markets. Together, these two pillars bolster our industry expertise, services and solutions so we can continuously add new capabilities to best serve our clients and help them succeed in a digital world.



This year’s Annual Review is focused on how CGI listens, innovates, leads and delivers. Can you share a few words on why these four attributes are so important? George: Today, we partner with clients on their most strategic and visible initiatives, helping to protect, grow, improve, develop and innovate the technology that runs their business. This Annual Review demonstrates how we listen to our stakeholders’ perspectives, innovate to solve complex challenges and create new opportunities, lead through our industry and domain expertise, and deliver through operational excellence. Reading through this Annual Review provides a demonstration of how CGI helps clients realize the promises of digital transformation. We thank our clients and shareholders for choosing CGI. Our 68,000 members are committed to striving each day to continue earning your trust and loyalty. We look forward to working together with our clients to gain from the opportunities that our digitally connected world will bring us. Now that CGI has been in business for more than four decades, what can clients, members and shareholders expect in the years to come? Serge: As George mentions, it is a rewarding time to be in the IT services industry. Our long-term commitment to serving our stakeholders is only accelerating as we support clients with their digital transformation. CGI is an institution built to grow and last. As I look ahead to our next 40 years in business, we will continue to be a consolidator within the industry, always evolving to best serve our stakeholders’ needs. Our stakeholders can expect to continue to benefit from CGI’s deep commitment to their success, no matter the economic environment and the business and technology trends leading them forward. To all those with whom we have had the privilege of working, thank you. I look forward with great anticipation to the value we will continue to create for all of our stakeholders in the years to come.

“ Our stakeholders can expect to continue to benefit from CGI’s deep commitment to their success, no matter the economic environment and the business and technology trends leading them forward. ”

Our global reach combined with our proximity model of serving clients from hundreds of metro markets around the world provides the scale and immediacy required to rapidly respond to clients’ digital transformation needs.

We listen. Listening is built into CGI’s DNA We invest in listening to our clients, members and shareholders with one purpose in mind — to better understand how we can exceed their expectations and create ongoing value. We’ve learned throughout more than 40 years in business that the input of our stakeholders combined with the insights of our experts enables us to continuously improve to drive their success. • For our clients, we invest in annual face-to-face conversations and ongoing client satisfaction assessments to give us a deep understanding of their challenges and opportunities. • For our professionals, whom we call members, we conduct an annual consultation to solicit their ideas on how to better serve our clients and grow our business, and also measure their satisfaction throughout each year. • For our shareholders, we hold hundreds of meetings and conduct an independent assessment every year to gain their insight for developing our strategy and improving our execution. Continuously and passionately listening to our stakeholders has enabled us to balance their interests and fulfill their needs. Ultimately, it’s been fundamental to helping our clients succeed, providing rewarding careers for our members and delivering superior returns to our shareholders.



CLIENTS Digitally transforming for the future — together In today’s digital world, technology has moved beyond its traditional role of enabling business to becoming a driver of business change. At CGI, we use advanced digital technologies and our industry expertise to support clients at every stage of their digital journey.

Aligning our investments with clients’ top trends and priorities In 2016, as part of our annual Voice of Our Clients program, CGI met face-to-face with more than 1,000 business and IT leaders across 10 industries and 20 countries to hear their perspectives on the trends impacting their organizations and the implications these trends have on their businesses. In these in-depth conversations, we discussed their challenges and opportunities, as well as their business and IT priorities, budgets and plans. Each year, CGI incorporates the findings and insights from these conversations into our annual strategic planning process to help refine our thinking, inform our investments and evolve our strategy to better address clients’ evolving needs. We also share the results with participants to help guide their own strategic planning. This year, we went a step beyond and published the findings and insights in the 2016–2017 edition of the CGI Global 1000. The trends and priorities identified in this outlook reflect the acceleration of digital transformation across the industries we serve.

Commitment to continuous improvement Satisfying clients is our business. CGI’s commitment to client satisfaction and high-quality and innovative delivery is reflected in our high client satisfaction scores. At CGI, client satisfaction is a key indicator of our success and is carefully measured and managed on a continuous basis through a comprehensive Client Satisfaction Assessment Program (CSAP). As part of the CSAP, clients engage in regular in-person discussions with their account managers to discuss the level of satisfaction with the quality and value of services and expertise provided, identify areas for improvement, and promptly address new opportunities. In response, CGI makes ongoing adjustments to ensure service excellence. The collective results of these client satisfaction meetings across CGI lead to an overall “report card” on CGI’s performance that helps us to better understand our clients’ expectations and requirements and what more we can do to help clients achieve their digital transformation.

Given our mutual trust and successful 15-year history, CGI is a natural partner to help execute our digital transformation roadmap. This year, CGI helped with the implementation and the launch of a comprehensive website and e-commerce service that will enable us to best support our customers as they increasingly choose to shop digitally.

CGI’s client-driven talent approach CGI has a 40-year track record of investing in talent. Today, we’re 68,000 members strong, serving clients across the globe from hundreds of locations. At CGI, our talent strategy is 100% client centric. We align our hiring with the needs of our clients, and the process is owned by the business leaders closest to our clients. Key client-centric principles that define and guide our talent strategy include: • Client proximity: Our members live and work near clients to provide a high level of accountability and responsiveness. Our local CGI team speaks the clients’ languages, understands their business, and collaborates to advance their goals. • Global expertise: We complement client proximity with the sharing of expertise from CGI members around the world who bring ideas, best practices and solutions to local accounts. We offer best-fit global delivery options, including onsite, onshore, nearshore and offshore delivery. • Ownership culture: CGI’s ownership culture is one of our key differentiators. An impressive 80% of members are CGI shareholders, reflecting a strong personal commitment to the company and our clients’ success. • Learning and development: CGI invests in comprehensive learning and development programs through the CGI Leadership Institute to ensure our members build, maintain and increase the skills they need to respond to clients’ evolving digital needs. • Talent integration: We successfully integrate talent into CGI, with half of our members joining the company through acquisitions or large outsourcing engagements. Our proven practices ensure seamless integrations, with significant value-add to our clients’ businesses. Another key principle is our commitment to listening to members and using their input to shape our strategy, offerings and delivery. This input has proved to be invaluable in aligning our business to client needs and exceeding expectations.

CGI is focused on serving as clients’ partner and expert of choice. This requires the right talent — professionals with the experience and skills to build digital, customer-centric enterprises. At CGI, we invest in recruiting, training and retaining professionals with extensive industry and technology expertise. Through this investment, we help clients accelerate their digital transformation while achieving high client satisfaction and service excellence. We’ll continue to build our team in direct alignment with ensuring our clients’ success on their digital transformation journeys.

Julie Godin Vice-Chair of the Board, Chief Planning and Administration Officer



Client satisfaction drives member satisfaction at CGI Year after year, members rate client satisfaction as key to their own work satisfaction. Through our Member Satisfaction Assessment Program (MSAP), members have the opportunity to provide input related to our client work and suggest ideas for improvement. The program also helps members — through continuous two-way dialogue — to build successful careers by assessing their satisfaction, goals and needs, and ensuring they receive the right support. In addition to the MSAP, CGI conducts an annual Member Consultation that solicits member input on the direction of our company, including how we can better serve clients. In 2016, 74% of members participated in the consultation and provided 51,000 suggestions and observations. As an integral part of our clients’ day-to-day operations, CGI members are in the best position to identify ways to help clients achieve their business goals. Our members are keen to apply their expertise to help clients implement digital strategies that accelerate their transformation. Their input on how we can continue to drive forward our clients’ success is applied to our business plans to ensure we’re well positioned to address client needs in the year ahead and beyond.

CGI’s Annual Tour: Aligning members with our strategic direction Every year CGI hosts the Annual Tour to launch our business plans across the company. A key part of our strategic planning process, the global event provides an opportunity for leaders to meet with members to share our strategic priorities and engage in two-way dialogue about our performance and future course. Through this in-person gathering, our members gain a greater understanding of our business and clients, equipping them to help improve our performance and better respond to client needs. The event also ensures alignment on the company’s strategic priorities and understanding of the goals to pursue, as a team, during the coming year.



SHAREHOLDERS Executing a growth strategy to best serve as clients’ partner of choice In the IT industry, companies come and go. CGI is the exception. Our Build and Buy growth strategy is central to ensuring we satisfy the needs of our clients, offer rewarding careers for our members, and provide a superior return over time for our shareholders. As market conditions increasingly favor consolidation, CGI will continue to execute our strategy to meet client demand for global partners. • On the Build side, we invest in our end-to-end digital transformation capabilities, including high-end consulting, systems integration, transformational outsourcing and digital intellectual property (IP), with IP representing 20% of CGI’s revenue. In fiscal 2016, CGI’s book-to-bill ratio was 110%, and 57% of bookings included extensions and renewals, and 43% represented new business. • On the Buy side, we focus on large, transformational acquisitions to further expand our geographic presence and critical mass, and small, niche acquisitions that provide deep local relationships, rich industry expertise, and digital transformation skillsets. These opportunities are identified through our client conversations and CGI Global 1000 insights (see pages 9 and 10). This year, we made the following strategic niche acquisitions: JSL, a leading Toronto-based consultancy specializing in banking and agile development; Alcyane, a French high-end consulting firm, also specializing in banking; and Collaborative Consulting, a Boston-based consulting firm with a focus on digital solutions, particularly in the areas of financial services and life sciences. Both sides of the strategy complement one another: We build organically to invest on the Build side, while the Buy side drives organic growth by offering clients additional resources and capabilities. CGI is well recognized by the investment community for this strategy, and our financial strength will continue to support CGI’s ability to help clients drive forward their digital transformation.

These stories provided further demonstration of how the work we do helps clients satisfy their digital customers and citizens.


We innovate. Aligning innovation programs and investments to the needs of our clients CGI is a trusted partner with more than 40 years of experience in delivering innovative, client-inspired business solutions. These solutions accelerate our clients’ digital transformation and enable them to achieve their goals faster with reduced risk and enduring results. From the creation of a new solution to the ongoing evolution of our top commercial intellectual property (IP), CGI uses the CGI Global 1000 outlook — insights from our annual 1,000 in-person conversations with business and IT leaders — and our day-to-day work with clients to inform our investments.

Helping a Swedish biobank benefit from 3D modeling

Working in an environment with extreme conditions creates great demands. Every day, we handle several hundred samples stored at minus 80 degrees Celsius. Up to now, there has been no means to meet these conditions and provide support in our daily work. Together with CGI and HoloLens, we see several opportunities that can contribute to the efficiency and management of these important research samples while the working environment for our employees greatly improves. This is a very exciting project for us that also might lead to many new ideas and applications in healthcare and research.

TURNING IDEAS INTO OUTCOMES Programs that harness, generate, assess and fund innovation CGI’s Innovation, Creativity and Experimentation (ICE) program is a cross-company initiative that harnesses new solutions to help clients with their digital transformation. Through “calls to action,” CGI professionals submit ideas to solve a business challenge, and the best ideas are funded to create proofs of concept and demos for clients. Proven solutions are then further developed to become part of the CGI commercial intellectual property (IP) portfolio. To further support client innovation, CGI also runs an On-the-Job Innovation program to harvest ideas from proposals and from those ideas developed while working on a client project. Learn more at

Driving savings and increasing productivity in running clients’ operations

Robotics process automation Clients seek solutions that will help them better run, change and grow their businesses as they work to become more digital to meet customer and citizen demands. One way they can achieve this is through robotics process automation — or RPA. In August 2016, CIBC World Markets cited that CGI is well positioned to benefit from this technology in an equity research report titled, “Leveraging Robotics And AI To Drive New Opportunities.” To support clients and further CGI’s market position, the ICE program funded two RPA ideas that became solutions to automate the filtering, aggregation and identification of IT events and to manage IT and security incident responses. Proofs of concept were run with several clients, demonstrating successful outcomes such as self-healing workflows and service request automation.

CGI has initiatives such as its central ICE (Innovation, Creativity, Experimentation) programme, plus a central investment committee that all service managers are part of which helps determine the direction. It is investing in digital IP by modernising existing assets (e.g. adding automation around processes, building SaaS solutions, adding BI and IoT capabilities, and paying a lot of attention to visualisation).

POWERING CLIENTS’ BUSINESSES WITH PROVEN IP Accelerating digital transformation through CGI’s business solutions We offer client-driven intellectual property (IP) solutions that include commercial software applications and digital enablers (reusable frameworks, tools and methodologies) that represent years of continuous investment in capturing our industry and technology expertise. These solutions, which include cloud/SaaS, mobility, IoT, data analytics and cybersecurity capabilities, are at the heart of CGI’s end-to-end offerings, which include business process services delivered by highly skilled professionals to increase our clients’ efficiency, services and savings. During 2016, we focused on the IP global initiative, which takes proven solutions within a local market and expands their footprint to benefit additional geographies and industries. Through the initiative, more clients benefitted from CGI’s time-tested, repeatable and differentiated IP. In addition, we continued our focus on pulling together robust IP and business architectures to provide clients with comprehensive offerings most critical to addressing their needs, such as: • The Protect the Bank offering leverages key CGI IP solutions, such as our HotScan filtering software, with a number of digital enablers (cyber protection, command and control, artificial intelligence, intelligent self-learning and big data) to help banks drive efficiency and effectiveness in protecting against financial crime. • The Protect the Payer solution suite draws on our experience in recovering $2.5 billion of improperly paid health claims and combines key CGI IP, such as our data-driven CGI ProperPay solution for claims fraud, waste and abuse, along with our HotScan filtering software and cybersecurity solutions, backed by CGI’s audit services. • The Future Cities solution suite supports local governments in building smarter, more sustainable cities through a robust suite of IP services and solutions that support citizen participation, energy management, government administration, health and social services, education, public safety, transformation and tourism, recreation and culture.

INNOVATING WITH AND FOR OUR CLIENTS Sharing best practices through CGI and industry conferences At CGI, client projects make up our “shop floor” and, through these projects, we innovate together with clients to digitally transform their businesses. At the core of this co-innovation with clients is engaging regularly through our Client Partnership Management Framework and Voice of Our Clients program (see pages 9-10). We also engage through leading user conferences, industry events and more. Here are some example events:

CLIENT CONFERENCES CGI Forum: Every year, the CGI Forum brings together CGI Advantage users to share best practices for maximizing their investment in this leading, built-for-government solution.

INDUSTRY EXPERTISE Industries are digitally transforming at different paces Sixty percent of business and technology executives as shared in the CGI Global 1000 outlook said their organizations are in the early stages of digital transformation. The CGI Global 1000 outlook explores the findings and insights across our 10 focused industries as organized against the digital transformation S-curve as seen at right. An organization’s climb up the S-curve depends on the market dynamics of its industry and the nature of its business. Organizations within consumer‑intensive industries are ahead of the pack in terms of their progress, followed by asset-intensive and risk- and investment-intensive industries, respectively. The outlook (see page 47) draws out the similarities and differences of these industries in terms of trends, priorities and plans. In this Annual Review, we share examples of how we are a leading IT services partner to the industries we serve and how we are helping to lead their digital transformation.

Risk- and investment-intensive industries Government, health, insurance, oil and gas Within risk- and investment-intensive industries, the urgency to digitally transform is driven by regulation and politics, as well as consumer or citizen demands.

OP also is enhancing the agility of our functions with CGI’s help through the adoption of the scaled agile framework model (SAFe). We chose CGI because of its industry knowledge, scalability and international expertise, in addition to its ability to meet our high standards of service delivery excellence. Our partnership with CGI helps us to continue to take advantage of the new opportunities brought by digitalization so we can continue to be the best financial provider to our customers.” Juho Malmberg, Chief Information Officer OP Financial Group Helsinki, Finland Developing a digital system that improves data insights and patient care “This system has helped us greatly at Helsinki City Rescue Department as it gives us an effective tool for emergency care situations offering the same standard of service to all our patients. On a single emergency care situation it’s beneficial that the patient’s vital data can be measured by a multi-defibrillator and that together with the data entered by paramedics can be viewed in real time at the treating hospital. This allows the ER doctor in charge to easily get a snapshot of the patient’s situation and hence be fully prepared on arrival of the patient. Merlot Medi is one of the main reasons why our patients’ care has improved in recent years.” Kari Porthan, EMS Chief Helsinki City Rescue Department Helsinki, Finland Merlot Medi was developed by CGI with the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa and Helsinki City Rescue Department.

California Franchise Tax Board

Increasing revenue, transparency and taxpayer service Government agencies are optimizing business processes and modernizing their IT environments to free up resources for transformational programs. A case in point is the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB). As the second largest U.S. tax agency after the Internal Revenue Service, FTB handles 20 million tax returns and 80 million website visits each year. Since 2011, FTB has partnered with CGI to modernize its tax systems through the Enterprise-Data-to-Revenue (EDR) project. It is one of the largest IT projects for the State, touching nearly every taxpayer in California. The EDR project has successfully addressed business problems FTB hired CGI to achieve, including: • Data availability: Returns are now corrected, payments and taxpayers are properly identified, more fraud goes detected, and cases are properly prioritized and assigned the most effective strategy and resources because more data is now available, shared and less costly to maintain. • Filing business processes: Returns take less overall time to process, business changes take a shorter time to implement, data is captured, returns are corrected and performance can be monitored because return filing processes have been updated. • System redundancy and reuse: Systems and functionality are less costly to develop and maintain because they are no longer redundant, have a common technology platform and are integrated. • Filing self-services: Taxpayer self-services are no longer limited due to outdated technologies and limited security. • Data analysis: Noncompliance discovery and fraud detection, tracking and prevention are improved through state‑of-the-art enterprise modeling. EDR is a continuous digitization project that replaces manual paper processes and uses leading data and analytics techniques to enable FTB to administer the tax system more effectively. It provides a common view of information to improve transparency and citizen service. To date, EDR revenue increases have exceeded targets, realizing $2.8 billion as of October 2016 and hitting its goal for the entire project early. As a performance-based, benefits-funded project, CGI services are paid from state revenue generated.

The EDR project success is not a fluke. The CGI team has been successful due to strengths in five key areas. These include planning and phasing the project; effective processes, including risk management; teaming with the FTB staff; use of modern technology tools; and optimizing the solution for success and taxpayer needs. Cathy Cleek, Chief Information Officer California Franchise Tax Board Sacramento, California, United States

The CGI Management Foundation At CGI, we are committed to being the best in our industry. To be the best, we need to operate as the best, and the CGI Management Foundation includes the key elements that define and guide the management of our company, including the CGI Constitution and our common policies, frameworks, processes, operational principles and measures. The Foundation encompasses the best practices that enable us to deliver in a consistent and successful manner no matter where CGI operates around the world.


CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY Working together to build stronger communities Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a key part of CGI’s day-to-day operations. Everything we do — from delivering sustainable services and solutions to donating our time and talents to strengthen our communities — ties back to the communities in which we, and our clients, live and work. At CGI, our focus is to work together with our stakeholders and our communities to make a difference in the world around us. CGI renewed listings and was included within top CSR indices that cover sustainability-driven companies worldwide, including RobecoSAM and S&P Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, MSCI and ECPI. CGI is also a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index Series.



PARTNERING FOR GOOD CGI at work in our communities CGI professionals are passionate about the communities in which we live and work. We take the skills required to be a leading IT services company — problem solving, creativity and collaboration — and put them to work to make a positive difference. Through volunteer and pro-bono initiatives and financial investments, we are committed to contributing to those causes that benefit the well-being of our communities.

2016 highlights Hacking for good CGI members from around the world combine technology expertise and an innovative mindset to participate in “hackathon” events aimed at generating new ideas and solving problems for clients and their communities. Here are examples of how we hacked for good this year: • Digital Lifestyle — CGI members in Düsseldorf, Germany, participated in a 24 hour in-office hackathon, where teams brainstormed ideas to bring digital transformation to life. The winning idea was a solution called Smarking — a smart parking solution for cities — to help residents find street parking in congested areas and enable cities to increase the efficiency of parking enforcement and capacity planning. • Earth Day Hackathon — The U.S. General Services Administration hosted an event to encourage teams of government employees, students and industry professionals to develop eco-friendly technology ideas. One of the four winning teams included CGI members who created a climate change indicator map for the Environmental Protection Agency.

Members in Düsseldorf, Germany, spent a weekend participating in a 24-hour in-office hackathon to brainstorm ideas to bring digital transformation to life.

• Ministry of Justice (MoJ) Hackathon — Members from across the United Kingdom participated in the first ever MoJ Hackathon to help the MoJ enable the courts to deliver justice more swiftly, offer better rehabilitation to offenders nationwide, and reduce the risk to the Legal Aid fund. • Steel City Codefest — This annual citywide event brings together volunteers to develop applications for local organizations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (United States). In 2016, CGI members developed an app for the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh to help improve the visitor experience, and another for the Allegheny Children’s Initiative to make data collection for families easier and more reliable. Research for resilient communities

Members from across the United Kingdom attended the first ever Ministry of Justice (MoJ) Hackathon.

To support building strong and healthy communities, CGI works with clients and organizations to study issues and present recommendations for driving a more sustainable future. Here are examples of research we conducted this year: • “Better business” — CGI supported a groundbreaking study conducted by Social Value Lab to analyze business, CSR and reporting practices among Scotland’s 500 leading companies. The study found emerging business leaders and the public at large are ethically motivated and less tolerant of corporate negligence and corrupt practices. It offered practical recommendations to encourage more responsible and progressive business practices. • “Identifying and analyzing digital payment flows regarding illegal purposes on the Internet” — In Sweden, CGI is part of a coalition of financial institutions and NGOs that collaborate to prevent payments related to the sexual abuse of children. This year, CGI supported a master thesis at Linköping University that studied unexplored illegal exploitation of legal businesses, with the purpose of limiting this market and especially the related transactions. • “Partnering with the Leaders of Tomorrow” — Every year in France, CGI partners with leading universities to mentor students and work with them in carrying out meaningful projects. This year, CGI and the CentraleSupélec engineering school joined forces to explore millennials’ views on the future of digital. By understanding and anticipating this generation’s expectations, French decision-makers in both the public and private sectors can better understand and anticipate this group’s expectations and needs.



CGI leaders in the United Kingdom participated in 40 different fundraising events to raise money for the Prince’s Trust.

Dedicating our time and talents Across our global operations, CGI members work together with charities and community organizations to support needed causes. Here are examples of community service initiatives from the year: • Driving technology education — CGI serves as the digital partner for the TEKNIK project in France, which mobilizes companies to educate young students on key industries and help them discover promising careers. CGI is working to create a positive perception among young people of the digital industry and promote it as one of the most dynamic and largest job providers in France. • Empowering rural education — CGI members began working with the Swami Vivekananda Adivasi Ashram Shala residential school outside of Mumbai, India, to help provide the underprivileged students with the basic necessities of life and tools to thrive in modern society. Nearly each month, CGI hosts an initiative to support the school, including providing medical treatment for the children, teaching spoken English and offering career guidance. • Partnering with the Prince’s Trust — This past year, both CGI and the Prince’s Trust celebrated their 40th anniversaries. A leading charity in the United Kingdom, the Prince’s Trust helps 13 to 30 year olds who are unemployed or struggling at school to transform their lives. To commemorate the joint milestones, CGI’s members engaged in 40 different ways to dedicate their time and talents to the charity and raised more than £50,000 for the organization. • The Ride to Conquer Cancer — CGI members in Quebec, Canada, once again participated in the two-day Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer to raise money for cancer research and treatment. The CGI cyclists collected more than $63,000 with the help of CGI-matched donations. CGI’s five-year total contribution to the organization now exceeds $500,000.

DRIVING SUSTAINABILITY Services and solutions that benefit clients and society Across industries, we partner with clients to deliver solutions that support energy and environmental sustainability, make cities smarter and improve the lives of citizens, protect the welfare of children and more. Here are examples of our innovative sustainability services and solutions: Smart utilities • Smart grids: In collaboration with Smart Society Services, CGI developed the Open Smart Grid Platform (OSGP) that uses Internet of Things (IoT) technology to integrate applications and link them to smart devices not only for utilities, but also for critical infrastructures such as roads and railways. The platform supports energy conservation solutions for public lighting, smart metering, energy distribution automation and more. • Smart meters: CGI is playing a key role in the rollout of 53 million smart meters in the UK between 2015 and 2020, one of the largest rollouts of smart meters in the world. We’re designing, developing and implementing the technology solutions required to support the rollout and ensure its success. • Renewable energy: Our Renewables Management System (RMS) solution controls more than 7,000 turbines on 600 wind farms in 9 countries across the globe. Our clients, including Energias de Portugal Renewables (EDPR), the third largest wind energy producer in the world, use RMS for remote farm control, decreased downtime and maintenance costs, immediate connection to the grid, and more.


2016 ANNUAL REVIEW Environmental protection • Driver performance: CGI’s BestDriver mobile app helps transportation and logistics companies improve driving performance by combining big data analytics with gamification. The end result is reduced fuel consumption and carbon emissions, and improved safety and cost-efficiencies. • Hazardous materials: CGI’s ProSteward360 solution provides for the safe handling of hazardous chemicals. In use in 100+ countries, the solution effectively manages chemical data, increases product safety and supports global regulatory compliance. • Regulatory management: CGI Advantage Regulatory Management helps agencies improve a wide range of regulatory functions, such as permitting, licensing and inspections, and provides constituents with self-service capabilities. • Disaster recovery: In partnership with the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, CGI developed the Sandy Integrated Recovery Operations and Management System (SIROMS) to manage the distribution of federal funds in support of Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts. Smart cities • Public spaces: CGI’s IBOR is an IoT-based solution that enables cities to remotely control public assets such as traffic lights to increase public safety, decrease energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions. • Community policing: Working with the Dutch police, CGI developed a mobile application that allows Dutch citizens to report suspicious activities to police, as well as receive crime and other security alerts. • Emergency response: CGI developed an innovative emergency response system for Estonia’s Ministry of the Interior that uses digital technologies to enable faster emergency response, better information sharing, and improved decision-making. • Patient-centered care: Using the latest digital technologies, CGI CommunityCare360 connects patients, primary care physicians, case coordinators, first responders and other healthcare workers to provide patientcentric care, whenever and wherever it’s needed. Child welfare • Child safety: More than 35,000 case workers across the U.S. depend on CGI-implemented State-wide Automated Child Welfare Information Systems (SACWIS) every day to protect the safety of children. • Exploitation: CGI is deeply involved with the Swedish Financial Coalition and NGOs in using technology, including the development of an innovative payment solution, to prevent payments related to the sexual abuse of children. PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Minimizing the impact of Hurricane Matthew for utility clients and their customers Utility companies were bracing for widespread outages as Hurricane Matthew wreaked havoc on the East Coast of the United States in October 2016. With persistent tropical force winds and potential damage from storm surge and seawater incursion, Hurricane Matthew presented a serious test to utilities and their mission-critical systems. With Florida home to several CGI utility clients operating our Pragma portfolio of outage, network and mobile workforce management solutions, we took a proactive approach to ensuring our clients were prepared to manage the incoming surge of outages and hazardous incidents as a result of Matthew’s impact. CGI provided onsite resources who offered critical technical support to safeguard system stability and help maintain business continuity during the actual storm response process, as well as the restoration efforts that followed. This work helped to increase safety and minimize downtime for the communities our clients serve.

Our name, OUC–The Reliable One, demonstrates our commitment to being one of the most reliable utilities in the nation every day. So when we wanted to upgrade our Outage Management System (OMS), we recently chose CGI for a major update to our advanced digital metering and computer-aided dispatch systems. We appreciate that CGI went above and beyond to come to Orlando before the impact of Hurricane Matthew. This helped ensure our team had the support they needed to restore power to our customers as quickly and safely as possible. Clint Bullock, Vice-President of Electric & Water Delivery Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC–The Reliable One) Orlando, Florida, United States
