Insurance certificate of coverage

DAS Risk Management is changing the way certificates of insurance coverage are issued. This is being done to save the amount of time used by both agencies and DAS Risk Management to process and deliver these documents. The changes are two-fold:

The Generic Certificate of Insurance Coverage

Much like how we currently provide Proof of Coverage for our state-owned vehicles, Risk Management is posting its all-purpose certificate of insurance coverage on our website for all to download or link to when proof of the state of Oregon’s insurance coverage is requested. This is generally requested when the state has signed agreements and contracts as the service-provider or lessee. The certificate contains generic references back to the contract regarding the need for:

  • The insured name (state of Oregon in lieu of specific agencies boards and commissions)
  • Description of certificate use
  • Additional insured status
  • Whether replacement costs apply (generally required on equipment lease agreements)

A new Certificate will be posted on the web at least annually when the tort cap limits are changed on July 1. Each certificate version is identifiable. The first posting this fiscal year is our third draft named v1617.3. The next version issued for this year will be named v1617.4. The first version next fiscal year will be v1718.1

Fiscal Year 1617 Certificate (July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017)

Fiscal Year 1718 Certificate (July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018)

The Certificate of Insurance Request form

DAS Risk Management anticipates our generic certificate is appropriate in nearly all circumstances. A few exceptions we have identified are for forest service permits and loaned fine art. If there is a situation where the certificate is not acceptable, we have developed a request form. This fillable form  allows us to generate a certificate in a reasonable time period. The process for you to request a certificate is simple – review the contract for certificate requirements, access the form, complete it, save it and send it to us via e-mail as an attachment. 

If you have questions or have concerns raised by contract holders about our generic certificates, feel free to contact DAS Risk Management. You may also feel free to have your contract holders contact us directly with their concerns
