Vendors & Contractors

Vendor Liability Insurance provides protection against claims of bodily injury and property damage liability for work performed by selected Vendors and Contractors who are under contract with The Regents of the University of California, and the litigation costs to defend against such claims. In addition, miscellaneous errors and omissions coverage provides protection against professional errors that result in financial harm to a third party.

Alternatively, if you are an exhibitor, performer or vendor at a campus event, you do not require Vendor/Contractor Liability insurance, rather, you will need one of the following to meet your insurance requirements:

  • If you are an exhibitor, performer or vendor at a campus event, and you are not hosting this event, please click Exhibitor/Vendor Liability Application for the application. Once completed, please email the application to plsdsteam.service@mercer.com.
  • If you are you are an exhibitor, performer or vendor AND you are hosting the event, please click Tenant User Event Liability to be directed to the appropriate online application or a TULIP Application Form that may be printed.

Vendor Liability

Protects approved vendors working under contract for The University of California.

AIG will approve international vendors ONLY if the work is being performed in the US, and they are required to provide the US address where the work is taking place. Any work done outside of the US would not be approved.

Provides coverage for lawsuits arising from:

  • Bodily Injury
  • Property Damage Liability
  • Errors & Omissions (professional liability)
  • Cost of investigation and defense of claims
  • $1,000,000 Per Occurrence
  • $2,000,000 General Aggregate
  • $2,000,000 Miscellaneous Professional Liability (Applies per vendor and is separate from the general aggregate and products completed operations limits)

For approved Vendors/Contractors, a $500 charge will provide coverage for 365 days from the contract start date. This will cover all projects falling within the scope of said contract between the Vendor/Contractor and The Regents of The University of California.

Each approved Vendor/Contractor will be listed as an Additional Named Insured on the master policy issued to The University of California, and will be provided a certificate of insurance.
