BCJPIA was created in 1986 to develop effective risk management programs to reduce the amount and frequency of losses; to share the risk of self-insured losses; and to jointly purchase and provide administrative and other services including, but not limited to claims adjusting, data processing, risk management, loss prevention, accounting services, actuarial services, and legal services in connection with the program.
The Bay Cities Joint Powers Insurance Authority provides cost-effective, fiscally sound liability, workers' compensation, property, and other lines of coverage for Member Entities.
The Bay Cities Joint Powers Insurance Authority (Authority) has met all of the high professional standards established by the California Association of Joint Powers Authorities (CAJPA) in the areas of governance, finance, claims control, safety and loss prevention, excess coverage, and risk management. CAJPA's accreditation process requires reviews by independent consultants in all of these areas including the areas of accounting, claims adjusting, and actuarial analysis.
The Authority is proud to have held the highest designation possible since June 28, 1999: "Accredited with Excellence."
