Recall our prior blog on the 2nd Citizens RFP for Daily and Catastrophe Adjusting firms? Here is a link to that blog. That blog was regarding the 4/22/08 RFP (Request for Proposal) for Adjusting firms wishing consideration to work 2008/2009 claims (date depends on if it is daily or catastrophe assignments as explained in the RFP).
The April 22, 2008 RFP was to replace the one Citizens posted and cancelled earlier in the year. Here’s the link to our earlier blog on the first cancellation if you missed it.
Now- we find that Citizens yet again made a 3rd revision April 28, 2008 which is truly beyond believable that the number one insurer in the state of FL can behave so poorly when getting it together to work with independent adjusting firms who they are counting on to handle the majority of their claims – atleast for now that is (the percentages are reduced over the next few years per documents they have presented to the Citizens of FL Claim Task Force).
Tomorrow I’ll get into concerns with the RFP and their answers to questions presented by adjusting firms they posted on May 9, 2008 which should drive off even the most die-hard claims professionals when they review the answers Citizens posted. You can catch up on these documents by reviewing RFP 08-0016 and the revisions and addendums posted in the right column here:
