Treasurer's Instruction 1403 Claims Management
A new Treasurer's lnstruction has been approved providing instruction and guidance for agencies on the management of claims made against the Tasmanian Risk Management Fund for loss of or damage to property, personal injury or a potential liability (but excluding workers compensation).
Treasury has prepared the new TI in response to ongoing issues raised by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in relation to the management and settlement of claims. ln particular, Treasury has been advised that agencies were not always seeking advice from the DPP on claims (or potential claims), or advice was sought too late in the process, thereby potentially compromising the Crown's position.
Treasury sought feedback from the DPP, the Fund Administration Agent, Marsh Pty Ltd, and agencies in the preparation of Treasurer's Instruction 1403 Claims Management.
The new TI, effective from 1 May 2013, is available on the Treasury website at treasury.tas.gov.au>Treasurer's Instructions>Government Contracts and Claims Management. Links to the new TI also appear on the TRMF website under 'Further information' for the applicable risk types listed under 'Incident Management'.
If you have any queries in respect to the new TI, please contact Alison Lyne on telephone 6166 4221 or email email@example.com.
