Full report in PDF format

  • Florida’s Division of Risk Management continues to perform well in its primary function of processing claims.  The program successfully processed its typical claims as well as claims related to recent hurricanes.  Changes in the way property claims are managed should allow the division to improve its handling of such claims, including those associated with the 2005 hurricane season.
  • While the division has made significant efforts to improve statewide loss prevention activities, there are several steps the Legislature could take to improve Florida’s loss prevention program.  Casualty losses could be contained by developing loss prevention minimum standards, monitoring agency implementation of those standards, and modifying the method used to appropriate casualty premiums.
