CR(LOCAL) - INSURANCE AND ANNUITIES MANAGEMENT

SELF-INSURANCE RESERVE FUND

A reserve for self-insurance shall be maintained for the exclusive purpose of paying nonbudgeted self-insured losses, and/or insured losses until insurance recovery is made, or for uninsured/underinsured losses. Uninsured losses include damage to buildings and their contents due to fire, windstorm, and explosion, and any other losses and physical damage for which the administration has given up insurance to select a self-insurance alternative.

Interest earned on the balance of the reserve shall accrue to the self-insurance reserve or otherwise, as indicated in the recommended budget.

COLLECTION / RECOVERY OF DAMAGES

The Risk Management Department, with the cooperation of the individual department or school, shall attempt recovery from negligent third parties for damage to District property.
