About Us

The FCSIG Joint Powers Authority (JPA) organization was formed in 1982 by a group of Central Valley educators to reduce the costs of workers’ compensation insurance.

Mission Statement

The mission of Fresno County Self-Insurance Group Joint Powers Authority (FCSIG JPA) is to provide competitively priced workers’ compensation insurance coverage and a proactive risk management program to protect the health and safety of employees and improve loss experience for members. Since its inception, the Authority has recognized the unique needs of its greatly diverse membership; and remains focused on supporting and accommodating the individual needs of its member districts in the Central Valley.


As with educational institutions, accreditation by a recognized accrediting organization has been one way of ensuring standards are established and met. The JPA has received Accreditation with Excellence status by the California Association of Joint Powers Authorities (CAJPA) and the accreditation is renewed on a regular basis. Only thirty-five out of the hundreds of JPA’s in California have received this level of accreditation.
