3 Objectives Define Risk Management
Explore basic components of a typical Risk Management Program 3

4 Risk Management Defined
Risk Management covers all the processes involved in identifying, assessing and judging risks, assigning ownership, taking actions to mitigate or anticipate them, and monitoring and reviewing progress. 4

5 Risk Management Defined
Planning for the negative consequences of any decision process or action by using whatever means feasible to control the chance of financial loss. Public Sector Risk Management Manual The “Public Sector Risk Management Manual” is published by PRIMA and written by public sector risk managers. Note to Presenter: This is based upon a traditional and rather narrow definition of risk – which is focused upon potential loss. An expanded definition of risk, which includes the potential for loss or gain, is the definition used in “enterprise risk management”. 5

6 Risk Management Involves
Trying to stop losses from happening (through avoidance, risk control, loss control or loss prevention) Paying for the losses that do occur (through reduction, insurance or risk transfer) This is an attempt to restate the definitions in non-technical language. The major concepts (listed in parentheses) are discussed in more detail throughout the rest of the presentation. 6

7 Risk Categories Strategic Risk – strategic objectives and political, economic and global market conditions Financial Risk – currencies, interest rates, credit and liquidity risks Operational Risk – risks related to systems, processes, technology and people Compliance Risk – regulatory and legal Reputational Risk – damage to “brand” Hazard Risk – property, liability, workers comp 7

12 Standard Public School Insurance Coverages

13 Insurance A contractual relationship that exists when one party (the insurer) for a consideration (premium) agrees to reimburse another party (the insured) for loss to a specified subject (the risk) caused by designated contingencies (hazards or perils). 13

14 Insurance Program Coverages
Definition of Insured Needs to be broad so that it covers the following: District and its employees / student teachers Elected / appointed officials Sponsored / endorsed organizations Volunteers who do work at your direction on behalf of the District 14

15 Property Coverage Buildings Contents Inland Marine Valuable Papers
EDP Equipment EDP Extra Expense EDP Media AV Equipment Valuable Papers Fine Arts Musical Instruments Builder’s Risk Needed for new construction and renovations at your district Extra Expense Increased Cost of Construction / Demolition Coverage Auto Physical Damage Electronic Data Processing Equipment, Data, and Software EDP Equipment and media/software includes all electronic property and equipment that is generated by a microprocessor or other memory device (please note that EDP definitions vary widely with insurance policies). In addition to the perils described above, other causes of loss commonly insured under an EDP form include: electrical damage, power surge, brown-out, short circuit and magnetic damage or erasure of EDP data and/or software, mechanical breakdown, change in temperature or humidity, computer virus and earthquake and flood. For example, coverage would apply if a software virus infected your information systems and destroyed all the data saved on the hard drives. 15

16 Crime Coverage Employee Dishonesty
Loss of Money - inside / outside premises Depositor’s Forgery Bonds i.e. working cash / treasurer’s / life safety 16

17 Boiler and Machinery Coverage
Fired / Unfired Pressure Vessels MEA coverage Refrigeration coverage Air Conditioning Units Extra Expense Water Damage Joint Loss Endorsement BOILER AND MACHINERY COVERAGE This form of insurance provides important mechanical breakdown coverage generally not available under any other insurance policy. A Boiler and Machinery policy can protect an insured against the effects of catastrophic property loss, such as steam boiler explosion or an expensive breakdown of machinery and equipment. But it's not just the physical damage caused by the explosion or breakdown that's of concern. While repairs are being made, valuable time and profits are lost. Business Interruption coverage protects against this. Often Extra Expense coverage is required to keep the business in operation regardless of cost. Consequential Damage and Refrigeration Interruption insurance protect against spoilage as the result of a breakdown. Many times these business interruption, extra expense and spoilage losses can be much more extensive than the damage to the equipment itself. Equally important is the very valuable inspection service that Boiler and Machinery insurance can provide. Not only does this service satisfy most jurisdictional inspection requirements, but it also can benefit the insured by providing sound loss control recommendations that can help assure efficient operation and longer equipment life. 17
