State Authorities, whose claims are delegated for management by the State Claims Agency, do not have conventional insurance cover in respect of the liabilities arising from these claims. Instead, they operate under State indemnity, a self-insurance model or ‘pay as you go’ system, whereby the State Authority retains the costs of claims.
