Judicial Branch Workers' Compensation Third Party Administrator, HR-2021-27-DM

The Judicial Council of California (JCC), chaired by the Chief Justice of California, is the chief policy making agency of the California judicial branch.   The California Constitution directs the JCC to improve the administration of justice by surveying judicial business, recommending improvements to the courts, and making recommendations annually to the Governor and the Legislature.  The JCC also adopts rules for court administration, practice, and procedure, and performs other functions prescribed by law. 

The JCC serves as the Judicial Branch Workers’ Compensation Program (JBWCP) Program Administrator (Program Administrator). On January 1, 2001, each of the Trial Courts in California’s 58 counties became independent employers of the employees who worked in that court. Prior to this date, the employees of each trial court were considered employees of their respective counties and fell under their respective county-administered workers’ compensation plans. After the JBWCP was created on January 1, 2003, the courts began the transition from their county-administered plans to the JBWCP. 
The primary objective of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to identify and retain a qualified TPA that can provide claims handling administration and expertise for JBWCP Members.
Questions should be directed to solicitations@jud.ca.gov and must be received no later than 1:00 pm Pacific Time, October, 28, 2021.
