Insurance Requirements

Some transactions between the university and supplier requires that the supplier prove insurance coverage.

This page provides some basic information about handling insurance requirements. See the Safety Services website for specific details on insurance requirements.

When Insurance is Required

The supplier's insurance certificate must be on file in the Procurement & 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.

Insurance Requirements

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

  • Commercial and General Liability
    • Standard coverage limits: $2M aggregate, $1M each occurrence, $2M Products and Completed Operations.
    • Required endorsement: "The Regents of the University of California are named as additional insureds."
  • Professional Liability

  • Business Automobile Liability
