North Las Vegas is bringing the functions of its human resources department back in-house, more than two years after outsourcing the work to a consultant as a way to save more than $1 million, city officials said Friday.
The switch is not expected to cost any additional money, city spokeswoman Delen Goldberg said. Funds that were budgeted for the consultant, Prism Global Management Group, will now be spent on the city’s resurrected human resources department.
The city’s contract with Prism Global Management Group expired Aug. 10, Goldberg said. The new human resources department will be staffed with up to six employees.
The North Las Vegas City Council voted in May 2015 to outsource the city’s human resources functions.
The move came as two longtime employees in that department accused Mayor John Lee of abusing his authority, but a state administrative board ruled in favor of the city earlier this year.
