Mesa County hires benefits consultant

The Mesa County Board of Commissioners this morning approved a $54,000 contract to hire Segal Consulting as Mesa County's benefits consultant.

Mesa County issued a Request for Proposal for benefit services in December. A committee of six Mesa County human resources staff and others used a systematic process of assigning points to each applicant to come up with finalists and then a final recommendation. In all, the county received 12 proposals. Segal was the committee's final recommendation.

Segal will provide in-depth expertise in helping staff to explore all available options on the benefit front. Segal serves the state of Colorado, as well as many other large clients, in this capacity. Even in their response to the RFP, Segal demonstrated "out-of-the-box" thinking with solid proposals that included realistic time frames.

Mesa County officials are excited to have a strong partner to help them make important benefits decisions.

Jamie Hamilton, Home Loan Insurance Co. chairman and CEO, served as an advisor to the selection committee. He told Mesa County Commissioners that the committee's process was "fair, honest and on-point."

"This was fair, just, right on point and what's best for the citizens of Mesa County," Hamilton said. "I agree that it's a very prudent decision."

Segal will begin working with the county immediately.
