Insurance Requirements in County Contracts

Risk Management has developed guidelines for insurance requirements for most goods and services typically procured by the County. As you develop new contracts, please use the insurance requirements spreadsheet to determine the appropriate insurance Exhibit C for your contract. If you do not find a "Type of Contract Activity," listed, please contact your assigned Risk Management staff person.

After developing the scope of services:

  1. Open the Insurance Requirements Spreadsheet (PDF - 91kb)*
  2. Find the "Type of Contract Activity" that best fits the scope of services.
  3. Select the corresponding Exhibit C Certificate Number.
  4. Print and attach the EXHIBIT C certificate to your contract.
  5. Attach contractor's approved insurance certificate to the contract.
  6. If you request a waiver from Risk Management you will need to attach the waiver to the contract.
