The Garden Route District Municipality (GRDM) Council has appointed AON (underwritten by Lion of Africa) during 2015/2016, following a competitive bidding process (Tender E/02/15-16). AON was then appointed for a 3-year period to provide insurance coverage to the Council. On 27 June 2019, the GRDM Council discussed and resolved the extension of a twelve month Service Level Agreement (from 1 July 2019 – 30 June 2020) between AON (PTY) Ltd and GRDM.
