Insurance Requirements

Some transactions between the university and suppliers require that the supplier provide insurance coverage. This page provides some basic information about handling insurance requirements.

The supplier’s insurance certificate must be on file in the Procurement and Contracting Services Department before work commences. A certificate of insurance is a document issued by insurance carriers as evidence of insurance coverage. Failure of the supplier to provide an insurance certificate upon request will result in significant delays in processing purchase orders.

Requirements

Various coverage types and limits are required depending on the type of service or contract. The following are basic guidelines. All are subject to change based upon the specific transaction:

Commercial and General Liability

  • Standard coverage limits: $2 million aggregate, $1 million each occurrence, $2 million Products and Completed Operations
  • Required endorsement: "The Regents of the University of California are named as additional insured"

Professional Liability

  • Standard coverage limits: $2 million aggregate, $2 million each occurrence

Business Automobile Liability

  • Standard coverage limits: $1 million each combined single limit
  • Required endorsement: "The Regents of the University of California are named as additional insured"

Worker's Compensation

  • Coverage as required by law. If a supplier has one or more employees, the supplier is required to provide proof of Worker’s Compensation Insurance. If the supplier does not have employees, they can complete a Waiver Form.
