The Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) is an independent special district formed in 1918, specifically to protect and conserve local water sources in the Coachella Valley. The Coachella Valley includes the desert cities of Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Indian Wells, Desert Hot Springs, Indio and Coachella. CVWD’s five-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is approximately $701 million. Currently, CVWD has a staff of more than 500.
The Department of Facilities and Maintenance is developing CVWD’s first ever comprehensive full scale Asset Management (AM) program. The recently completed Asset Management Master Plan (AMMP) focused on maximizing the lifecycle cost of infrastructure, while delivering required levels of service, at acceptable risk. The Asset Management Program Coordinator is a new position created to oversee the implementation, maintenance and training of the AM Program. The Coordinator will report to the Director of Facilities and Maintenance and will work with three consulting firms and internal staff to complete the inventories, condition assessments, life cycle and asset valuations, and the creation and long-term maintenance of the CMMS and AM program. CVWD has $1.3 billion in capital assets.
Requires a college degree in Finance, Accounting, Engineering, Computer Science, or other related technology field; AND a minimum of five years of asset management experience (water utility setting preferred). CMMS software experience is required. Technical skills with programs like GIS and accounting acumen are also required.
