The liability insurance coverages, except Professional Liability, Errors and Omissions, or Workers’ Compensation, if included, required for performance of the Contract shall include the State of Oregon, the Department of _____________ and its divisions, officers and employees as Additional Insureds but only with respect to the Contractor’s activities to be performed under this Contract. Coverage shall be primary and non-contributory with any other insurance and self-insurance.
- Additional Insured provisions extend to the state defense and coverage under the Contractor’s policy, if we are blamed for something the Contractor did. The state benefits by not having to use its assets for litigation purposes.
- The purchase of a "Blanket Additional Insured Endorsement" is another alternative to naming the State as an Additional Insured on a Contactor´s existing coverage. The Contractor´s insurer may be more willing to provide this option as it is extra coverage the Contractor must purchase.
- Does not apply to Professional Liability, Errors and Omissions, or Workers’ Compensation coverages.
