General Counsel Review:N/A

Committee Recommendation: The Administrative Committee reviewed this item on June 12, 2017 and recommended approval.

CEQA Compliance:This action does not constitute a project as defined by the California Environmental Quality Act Guidelines section 15378.A

 

SUMMARY: With the retirement of the Districtís Human Resources Analyst, there was a need to find a replacement to fill that position.Based on the size of the District, the replacement of the full time Human Resources Analyst position can most effectively be filled with a part-time human resources consultant.

 

On December 12, 2016, the District entered in to an Agreement for Management and Administrative Services with Regional Government Services (RGS).The Agreement was for a period of six months and will end on June 30, 2017.

 

Based on current experience for the past six months, staff recommends extending the services of RGS for another year for a not-to-exceed price of $70,000.This amendment will be from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018, attached as Exhibit 6-A.

 

RECOMMENDATION:District staff recommends authorizing the General Manager or the Administrative Services Manager/CFO to sign Amendment No. 1 to the existing Agreement with RGS to provide management and administrative services for an amount not-to-exceed $70,000. Funds to cover this Amendment will come from savings by not hiring a full-time Human Resources Analyst.Approval of this expenditure is contingent upon adoption of the Fiscal Year 2017-2018 budget by the Board.

 

BACKGROUND: With the retirement of the Districtís full time Human Resources Analyst, staff evaluated the Districtís human resources need and realized that the most efficient way to fill the position would be to contract part-time human resources services.

 

RGS is a governmental, joint powers authority, formed in 2001, who exclusively serves public sector agencies. RGS will serve as a consultant for management and administrative services to provide human resources support for the District on a part-time, continuous basis and will provide onsite office hours of two four-hour days per week.

RGS has been providing services to the District since December 12, 2016, and the existing Agreement is anticipated to remain in force through June 30, 2017. RGS will assign RGS employees to serve as the Human Resources Advisor(s) to the District and will provide support by performing Districtís human resources management practices, policies and systems and by providing ongoing weekly Human Resources Management services.
