MMRMA Publishes Updated 2019 Risk Transfer Manual

Posted: Tuesday, August 6, 2019

MMRMA has recently revised and released the 2019 Risk Transfer Manual.

Here is an excerpt from the document’s introduction explaining its purpose:

The essential ingredients of any Risk Management Process are the following:

  1. Identifying exposures to loss.
  2. Analyzing risk management alternatives.
  3. Deciding on the best alternative.
  4. Implementing the decision.
  5. Monitoring and improving the risk management results.

One of the risk management alternatives is the proper transfer of risks that are deemed to be particularly hazardous and best handled by outside parties. We recommend these risks be transferred to private sector insurance carriers covering those who are doing business with your community.

The Risk Transfer Manual provides information and resources for members in this process.

The updated version addresses exposures relating to cyber liability and technology errors and omissions. 

Registered, logged in users of can download the updated manual in the Members Only section of the website. Click on the file cabinet icon beneath your name in the top right corner of the home page to access Members Only,  then scroll down to the Risk Management Tools heading and click it to expand. The 2019 Risk Transfer Manual is the first item under the Manuals heading.

Click on the document title and Save As to copy the PDF to your computer.
