A certificate of insurance provides evidence of the levels of insurance that an organization carries. It provides evidence that coverage in force complies with the requirements of the requesting organization. Certificates may be requested by the University from off-campus organizations or other organizations may request a certificate from the University.
Certificates requested by the University
Where required, third parties (e.g., contractors, subcontractors, service providers, tenants) will be requested to submit a certificate of insurance to demonstrate compliance with the insurance requirements specified in contracts or agreements.
