Risk Information

 Department Reorganization/Consolidation:

Effective July 1, 2021, the Department of Administrative Services will become part of the Department of Government Operations. This change is a result of the Utah Legislature passing S.B. 181. This change will not affect the way you work with the Division of Risk Management or the State Risk Management Fund.

Telework Update:

Due to the recognized benefits of teleworking, most of our employees continue to work remotely even as the State continues to realize welcome reductions in the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.  We remain committed to provide all essential services in a professional manner and want to ensure we are responsive to your needs.  If you have any questions or concerns, please use the following staff directory link to find the appropriate member of our staff to assist you.
