A Certificate of Insurance (COI) is a form listing the insurance carried by contractors the University does business with. The University also issues COIs for its contractual obligations. The Office of Risk Management does not issue the certificates, we coordinate with the insurance companies, agents and brokers who produce the certificates. Never contact the agent or insurance company directly.
A COI protects the University by confirming that our business partners are able to pay for their insurable liability. The COI is not a legal document - the contract is the enforceable document.
REQUIRED BEFORE REQUESTING A CERTIFICATE:
FIRST, all agreements and contract documents must be:
Reviewed and approved by the Office of University Counsel (OUC), or Purchasing, or Global Operations Support/International Contracts or Equivalent Approving RC, or
A pre-approved OGC template.
