Chris George: UK Gov’t Picks CGI to Support Radioactivity Monitoring System

CGI-logoCGI has won a four-year contract to provide application services and other support work for a radioactivity monitoring system the U.K. government uses in the event of an overseas nuclear accident.

The company will support the U.K. government-operated Radioactive Incident Monitoring Network that works to help authorities coordinate the nation’s emergency response if radiation threats emerge, CGI said Tuesday.

“We have a long and successful history in working with the U.K. department of energy and climate change and the Met Office to ensure RIMNET is actively ready to help support should a radioactive incident occur, ” said Chris George, CGI vice president of digital government in the U.K.

CGI will deliver application, security and facilities management services from its client service hub in South Wales.

The company has partnered with U.K.-based CC Engineering to provide hardware break-fix support under the RIMNET program.
