Stanley Associates, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CGI Federal, announced it has been awarded with three contracts valued at $64 million from the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs to provide visa processing services for various countries in Asia, the Caribbean and South America.
The 10-year global support strategy (GSS) contract includes orders received in September 2013, along with this past March and May.
