Special District Risk Management Authority is a public agency formed under California Government Code Section 6500 et seq. and provides a full-service risk management program for California’s local governments. For over three decades, SDRMA has provided members with comprehensive coverage protection.
Mission Statement: The Mission of SDRMA is to provide excellent risk financing and risk management services through a financially sound pool to California public agencies, delivered in a timely and responsive cost-efficient manner. Our combined membership totals over 650 individual public agency member agencies.
Since November 2005, SDRMA has been accredited with Excellence by the California Association of Joint Powers Authorities (CAJPA). The CAJPA accreditation program has been operating since 1989 and reviews the organizational structure and activities of a joint powers authority (JPA) comparing the JPA with standards adopted by the Association believed to be advantageous to the preservation and performance of the individual JPA and JPAs in California as a whole.
The purpose of the accreditation program is to promote professional management and fiscally sound practices, provide industry standards, assure governing boards of management’s compliance with accepted standards, and maintain a self-regulating process that is ultimately less expensive and more meaningful than State or Federal regulation.
