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
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 named v1920.1. The next version issued for this year (if necesary) will be named v1920.2. The first version next fiscal year will be v2021.1
We no longer provide individualized certificates. Our generic certificate of insurance coverage should work. Instead we include in the portion of the certificate labeled "Description of certificate use:" the following language which should satisfy your need as long as you have a contract or agreement with your state agency and the certificate requestor listed:
"This certificate of insurance coverage applies to active contracts and agreements that the State of Oregon agencies are utilizing to conduct official state business between the dates of July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020."
Our generic certificate of insurance coverage also includes indemnity language, additional insured language and lenders loss payable.
Should this document not satisfy your needs, we are able to provide instead a letter of self-insurance which contains far less insurance specifics than our generic certificate of insurance. Please let us know if you decide to request a letter of self-insurance.
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.
