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
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, property, real property, fine art, underground
tanks, 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.
