The Act establishes the Authority as the ACT Government's captive insurer providing insurance services to all ACT Government directorates and statutory authorities, to meet the insurable claims and losses of ACT Government agencies. The Authority's captive insurance model protects the ACT Government budget from a range of catastrophic and accumulated risk exposures through its reinsurance arrangements, and the accumulation of a fund reserve to meet the cost of future asset losses and legal liabilities that occur as a result of the activities of Government.

The Authority works to protect the assets and services of the Territory by providing risk management and insurance services to a large and diverse group of ACT Government client agencies and entities. The Authority also performs the function of Fund Manager for the Office of the Nominal Defendant of the ACT for default claims under the ACT Compulsory Third Party Insurance Scheme, and the Default Insurance Fund, for default claims under the ACT Private Workers' Compensation Scheme.
