Risk management

State of Oregon sponsored training 

Why the State Has Contractor Insurance Requirements

This complementary training is great for procurement professionals, contract administrators, program managers, and business transaction attorneys. Get answers to the following questions from industry experts and learn how to protect the state and our contractors!
  • It seems like such trouble. Why does the State have contractor insurance requirements?
  • The contractor says they cannot get insurance, or it is too expensive. Is that true?
  • What is the difference between professional liability  insurance and general liability insurance?
  • If a contractor has professional liability insurance, why do they also need general liability insurance - even when all they do is sit in an office?
  • It is a small contract. Why do they need insurance at all?
  • What is in it for the State?
  • What is in it for the contractor?
