Department of Law-Risk Management Liability Insurance The City purchased liability insurance in November of 2011. Our insurance carrier is Travelers, Inc. The City is insured up to $10 million dollars. However, we have a “self-insured retention” of $500,000. The self-insured retention is not cumulative. Therefore, on large claims we still need to pay the first $500,000 of each claim.
Department of Law-Risk Management Liability Insurance, continued. Litigation reports all potentially large claims to Travelers. Travelers then assigns a “reserve” to each claim based upon severity. Litigation reports a handful of claims each year. Examples of reported claims include police officer involved shootings and major accidents involving death or serious injury. Thus far, we have not experienced a major covered loss through insurance.
Department of Law-Risk Management Achievements Lawsuits received in 2012 have been at or below historical average. Cases closed in 2012 have exceeded historical average. Outlay amounts in late 2012 and early 2013 have been below historical average. Cases won v. settlements have been consistent with historical average.
Department of Law-Risk Management Areas of Improvement Continuous improvement in cases won v. settlements. Improve consistency of cash outlays per quarter. Close more files per quarter. Reduce new lawsuits by improving the claim resolution process.
Department of Law-FOIA Areas of Improvement FOIA presentation in March revealed the incompleteness of FOIA data. The data presented was correct but incomplete, and did not accurately reflect departmental FOIA performance. As a result, the FOIA team has developed several process improvements designed to improve the quantity and quality of RockStat data. FILOs will now individually report each late FOIA request to the FOIO(s). FILOs will double check the accuracy and completeness of the data entered into the departmental FOIA workflow. FILOs will close FOIA requests in a timely manner. IT Department will continue to develop new and improved data reporting.
Department of Law-FOIA Achievements Global FOIA search mechanism completed in March 2013 FILOs trained in new record keeping parameters in March 2013 IT has begun implementation of new data parameters
