Insurance and Financial Program

The Office of Risk Management oversees the administration of a self-insured Workers' Compensation Program and administers the self-insured Liability Program. Additionally, excess insurance provides financial safeguards for funds in both claims management programs.

This division is responsible for the development of the five year strategic plan, annual budget, and revenue management for the Office of Risk Management. Through this process, appropriate service charges are determined and billed to all County departments for their insurance coverage and services.

This division of the Office of Risk Management manages the purchase of all commercial insurance policies for the economic protection of County assets. These policies include, but are not limited to, coverage for aircraft, watercraft, real property, and other specialized and excess coverages that protect the County from loss.

This division also supports Purchasing staff and Real Estate staff in every County department. It establishes appropriate policies and supports compliance with these policies and County standards for insurance held by contractors, tenants, vendors, concessionaires, and others whose actions may expose the County to the risk of financial loss.
