The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission



Partnership Launched with Department of the Interior’s National Business Center

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) today announced the award of an interagency agreement with the U.S. Department of the Interior’s National Business Center (NBC) for financial management system support services using the competitive Centers of Excellence Financial Management Lines of Business program.

The agreement, which includes an 18-month base period, is valued at $11.7 million if all five one-year options are exercised. The NBC will perform migration and data conversion from the EEOC’s Integrated Financial Management System, which it currently operates and maintains. The agreement involves implementing and operating CGI Group Inc.’s Momentum® Version 6.1 Plus software. Feeder systems that will be connected to the software include payroll, labor cost collection, employee master files, travel and purchase bankcards, e-Travel software, revolving fund collections, and the Federal Procurement Data System – Next Generation. A Central Contractor Registration interface will be implemented at a later date.

In announcing the award, EEOC Chief Financial Officer Jeffrey A. Smith said, “Our partnership with the Department of the Interior’s National Business Center for our financial management system support has served us well since 2002. The EEOC received unqualified audit opinions on our financial statements for fiscal years 2004 and 2005. We look forward to a successful business relationship with the NBC as we migrate to and operate the next generation of financial management software.”

The NBC will provide all necessary hardware, software and communications for hosting; maintain the application with future releases; provide helpdesk and application security services; provide functional and technical support and operate and maintain back-end regulatory reporting and report distribution software. Additionally, the NBC will perform full service accounting operations for accounts payables, travel payables, inter-agency payments and collections, and commercial collections. Other financial support services may be ordered under the scope of the inter-agency agreement.

The EEOC is the federal government agency responsible for enforcing the nation's anti-discrimination laws in the workplace. Further information is available online at
