Transparency Builds Trust

04/22/19 – Gafcon’s Transparency Builds Trust for Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District

Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (GCCCD) serves nearly 30,000 students each year and found itself in need of upgrades in order to provide the best quality education. GCCCD hired Gafcon, Inc. as Bond Program Manager under the Propositions R (2002) and V (2012) bond programs, totaling $207M and $398M, respectively.

Gafcon’s team worked closely with District officials to prioritize tangible improvements for students and to ensure a transparent and efficient process to manage the bond programs.

Due to Gafcon’s focus on transparency, the Proposition R bond program received spotless audits with no findings of errors and was named a “Golden Watchdog Finalist” four times by the San Diego Country Taxpayers Association for proper expenditure and project performance. Proposition V has also received spotless audits since it was first audited in 2014.

Gafcon is Providing:

  • High-quality work delivered efficiently: Gafcon oversaw the successful completion of 41 projects Districtwide as part of Prop. R and has delivered new and improved STEM educational facilities at Grossmont College as part of Prop. V.
  • Building trust through transparency: Gafcon’s Design Standards, Facilities Master Plan and bond website facilitate up-to-date progress reporting the District, Bond Oversight Committee, and the community.
  • Technology makes the difference: Gafcon’s team is trained to innovate. To effectively manage the Prop. V program, Gafcon implemented Primavera Unifier, a web-based management tool that allows the District and program leaders to easily monitor project status down to minute detail.

Gafcon is a leading Owner’s Representative and expert in program and project management. If you’re interested in learning how Gafcon can achieve success for your project, please reach out to Jim Bray, Program Manager, at jbray@gafcon.com.
