PURPOSE OF RISK MANAGEMENT
Risk Management is a division of the Arizona Department of Administration. Risk Management was established in 1976 to provide insurance coverage to state agencies and employees for property, liability and workers compensation losses in accordance with the statutory provisions found in Arizona Revised Statutes Section 41-621 through Section 41-625. Risk Management's statutory responsibilities are to: Adjust claims associated with property loss or damage, liability lawsuits alleging negligence, and workers' compensation injuries to state employees. Self-insure these various types of losses, and/or purchase commercial insurance to offset them whenever advantageous to do so. Employ safety measures to pro-actively prevent accidents/incidents which could give rise to property, liability and workers' compensation claims.
Risk Management Administration is dedicated to enhancing external and internal risk management customers' ability to conduct their business.
