Risk Management


The Risk Management Department is responsible for the conservation of the physical, human and financial assets of the Okaloosa County Board of County Commissioners. Our major activities include the administration of the Self-Insurance Fund which includes General Liability, Workers’ Compensation and Auto and Property insurance.  We also manage the Employee Benefit Program, perform Contract Review, Public Records Requests, administer the Safety Program, and handle Claims Management. In addition, we act as Coordinator of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for the County.  All programs are administered in a fiduciary manner in order to maximize benefits to cost.
