Groveland Community Services District Logo

The Groveland Community Services District (GCSD, District) invites interested, qualified, and professional consulting firms (Consultant) to submit written proposals to evaluate, analyze, and prepare a Total Compensation and Benefit Study for the District. It is the District’s desire to obtain a consultant with public sector experience in completing total compensation studies. Familiarity with California drinking water treatment and distribution, wastewater collections and treatment certification requirements is preferred, but not essential. The consultant is expected to review existing job descriptions, compensation, and benefits. The District also expects the consultant to obtain and consider both employee and management feedback; analyze and incorporate local and comparable employers' compensation and benefits; interpret industry trends and potential implications to the District labor force; and make recommendations for revisions to the District's compensation rates and benefit package.

Proposal Due Date: July 12, 2024
