Delegated Data Manager

Delegated Data Manager

Online platform that standardises the collection, validation, and processing of Delegated Authority data

Delegated Data Manager (previously DA SATS) is a central bordereaux processing platform that went live in 2018. It was developed in partnership with the market, to standardise the collection and validation of Delegated Authority data across the market, enabling efficient global business transactions.

Further development of Delegated Data Manager is underway to enable integration with other market bordereaux processing systems. Enhancements currently being worked on include defining a DA data strategy within Lloyd’s to provide clarity on data required for regulatory and tax purposes. Improved guidance for system usage and Coverholder reporting standards is also being developed.

Key functionality

Binder registration

Delegated Contract Manager will manage the registration of all new contracts. The system can perform binder validation checks at an earlier stage, leading to better quality data and less re-work.

Creation of binding authority contracts

The optional Contract Builder tool will enable delegated authority contracts to be produced upfront in an electronic manner with automated data validation checks being conducted as the contract is being produced.

Renewal of existing binding authority contracts

Delegated Contract Manager can copy relevant data from the previous contract to speed up the renewals process.

Collaboration on binding authority contracts

Delegated Contract Manager will allow all parties to collaborate in real time on a contract, showing amendments by the contract creator at the request of the leader.

Lloyd’s published the first of its four process improvements that will provide benefits for the market and our customers, giving a more effective, efficient, and transparent end-to-end claims process. The new Cash Call Template provides standard guidance to delegated claim administrators (DCAs) and claims handlers on when a cash call is required, and the information needed. We have shared this directly with the likely affected people, and via the Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA) and London & International Insurance Brokers Association (LIIBA). If you believe you should have received the new template, please email
