CEO Risk Management
Q. Who are our clients?
A. Risk Management has multiple client responsibilities. It serves all County departments as an internal service agency within the County. However, its broader customer responsibility is to the taxpayer and ratepayer funding each department. The reason for this broader customer base is that the funds provided to each department should support the cost containment and compliance with legal mandates promoting an economical and legal operation. Additionally, each program has its unique clients. Those clients are noted within the service description in each program area.
