Three Year renewal of third party adjuster (TPA) for Workers Compensation and Liability for self-insured programs. Renewal pricing remains the same for the next three years.  Claims above the 196 will be billed proportionately.

2020-2021 Workers Compensation Claims up to   196 claims  $80,935     Automobile, general liability and property claims   $11,703

2021-2022  Workers Compensation Claims up to   196 claims  $80,935    Automobile, general liability and property claims  $11,703

2022-2023  Workers Compensation Claims up to   196 claims  $80,935    Automobile, general liability and property claims  $11,703

Gap Analysis

The District has a mandatory obligation to contract with a TPA to assist in the management of our self-insurance programs.  JECO is a proven industry leader at providing expert claims adjusting and administration services.  Their TPA services assist the District with workers' compensation claims, medical bill reviews, as well as major property and casualty claims.  The District has utilized JECO's services since 2000. During this time their pricing has stayed competitive and we have benefited from no cost increases since 2019-2020.

2014-2015   220 Claims   $85,098

2015-2016   220 Claims   $87,651

2016-2017   220 Claims   $87,651

2017-2018   239 Claims   $87,651

2018-2019   239 Claims   $87,651

2019-2020   239 Claims  $92,638

2020-2021   239 Claims  $92,638



Previous Outcomes

It has been normal practice to negotiate pricing with JECO and present a three-year addendum to the original contract dated July 2000.  This is our 12th extension with JECO.  Pricing has stayed reasonable for the services provided and we've experienced reasonable market increases over the course of our agreement.

Expected Outcomes

The three-year extension is intended to provide the Clay County District Schools with the type claims management that is needed to maintain business as required by Florida laws & statutes while minimizing the district's exposure to losses.

Strategic Plan Goal

The district ensures fiscal responsibility and equitable distribution of resources.


To obtain the School Board's approval and acceptance of the Superintendent's recommendation of  Johns Eastern Company's,  Addendum 12, 3-year Third Party Adjuster renewal.
