The Queensland government has awarded CGI a $58.8 million contract to deliver a debt recovery solution that will enable faster collections. Queensland\u2019s State Penalties Enforcement Registry (SPER) collects speeding, parking and toll evasion fines as well as court ordered penalties and offender levies. CGI\u2019s Collections360 solution will provide SPER with a single integrated system that promises an increase in collections and a reduction in the age of debts. The contract covers five years of service and an optional two years\u2019 extension. It is expected to begin in the second half of 2017, following completion of an implementation project. \u201cCGI has a 30-year track record of successful collections implementations for Governments across the world and 11 projects alone have so far secured revenue benefits of $5.7 billion,\u201d said Colin Holgate, president of CGI in Asia Pacific. \u201cThis is money that our clients have independently certified would not have been collected without our solutions. Our work with SPER will result in debts being collected faster while ensuring that vulnerable debtors are afforded appropriate advice and assistance from the outset. We are confident that the Queensland Government will quickly see the benefits of implementing CGI\u2019s solution.\u201d The tailored solution will include advanced data analytics, behavioural economics and system reporting.
