About This Service

The DGS Equipment Maintenance Management Insurance Program (EMMP) is a competitively bid program designed to help all California state agencies maintain and repair their state-owned equipment.  The program replaces existing third-party and equipment manufacturer service contracts and enables departments to reduce the annual cost of equipment maintenance, improve service performance, and enhance tracking of maintenance events and costs.

By consolidating the State’s equipment onto one insurance master program and eliminating the high costs and inefficiencies of multiple vendor service contracts, EMMP has realized a total Statewide savings of over $21 million dollars on maintenance expenditures since its launch in 2010. More than 40+ state departments participate in the EMMP, covering over 33,000 state assets. EMMP is the cost-effective and innovative solution to equipment care that offers:

  • Significant cost savings of at least 21+ percent from current or traditional equipment maintenance and repair spend.               
  • Asset management through online access to equipment portfolio, service events and management reports.
  • Administrative efficiency by eliminating time spent bidding and managing multiple maintenance and repair service contracts.
  • Ease of use with one point of contact to manage all your maintenance needs.
