DCI Consulting, a human resources risk management consultancy, has acquired Gerstco, a boutique firm specializing in affirmative action software and consulting.

Founded in 1982 and based in San Jose, CA, Gerstco advises on affirmative action plan (AAP) planning, education, compensation analysis, reporting, and OFCCP audits. The firm also offers DVAAPBase, a software tool for AAP development, non-discrimination testing, and compensation analysis, among other areas.

Gerstco has four employees, according to LinkedIn.

DCI’s acquisition of Gerstco will strengthen its offerings in AAP development and consulting, software-based affirmative action plan development, audit support, and pay equity analyses to federal contractors and subcontractors.

"The acquisition of Gerstco adds an experienced and effective team of consultants and support staff to the DCI family," said David Cohen, president of DCI Consulting. "We look forward to serving a new set of clients while expanding our presence in California and the Pacific region at large."

The deal follows DCI’s November acquisition of Glenn Barlett Consulting Services, an affirmative action compliance consultancy based in Englishtown, NJ.

DCI is headquartered in Washington, DC and has more than 90 employees, according to LinkedIn. The firm advises companies and law firms on complex HR challenges, including pay equity; DEI; affirmative action plan development and implementation; employee selection and test validation; and OFCCP audit and litigation support.
