As an advisor to Public Sector entities we are often required to rationalise the risk and insurance implications of new government policies and legislation for our clients. Generally it is rare for us to have the opportunity to comment on the proposals before implementation and we often found ourselves playing catch up to the legislators.
Most recently, we have seen a raft of new legislation and guidance issued; necessarily so as it all helps to manage the pandemic for the common good. However, some of that legislation has imposed new duties on the sector which have significant insurance implications for insurance and risks managers. Certainly, some lead in time to help manage the practicalities of implementation would have been welcomed but given the extraordinary time we find ourselves it is understandable why this was not possible.
Gallagher Public Sector & Education team are vastly experienced and are keen to contribute to the debate. For this reason we are delighted to announce a partnership with the UK’s Institute of Government and Public Policy (IGPP).
The IGPP is a think tank that works with senior politicians and civil servants to explore the key challenges facing policymakers and ways to make government more effective. The organisation seeks to influence public policy development by facilitating engagement and interaction between the public and private sectors.
The partnership will see our managing director Tim Devine become a member of the IGPP Corporate Advisory Board. In this position Tim can help highlight the particular issues within the sector with a view to ensuring risk and insurance is considered by legislators before deciding on policy
