GERS (General Employee's Retirement System)
City of Pontiac
The City of Pontiac General Employees’ Retirement System (GERS), Pontiac, Michigan, was established in 1946 for the purpose of providing retirement allowances and death benefits for employees of the City of Pontiac. The GERS is a single employer defined benefit plan which is administered by an eleven-member Board of Trustees (the Board). The Board employs such professional, clerical and other services as are required for the proper operation of the System and this includes three full-time staff members. The Retirement Office was relocated from the Pontiac City Hall building to an office building located in Auburn Hills, Michigan in 2013. The Board is currently evaluating potential locations and purposes to relocate the Retirement Office to a permanent location in 2021.
GERS’ IT Administration (network, systems and hardware administration, monitoring, connectivity, back-up and security, applications maintenance, email and webpage hosting) is completely outsourced.
GERS is seeking proposals from experienced information technology firms to provide the System with information technology management services in the areas of network and technical administration and support, systems support, PC desktop technical support, software integration support, email and web hosting and security. Respondents will be expected to advise on and make recommendations for GERS’ IT needs and policies on an ongoing basis.
