Requesting Insurance Certificates
Occasionally Mines will need to provide to another party evidence of insurance coverages for liability, property, workers’ compensation or other specifically identified insurance. Certificates of Insurance (COI) must be issued by our insurance broker (Flood and Peterson). Issuance of certificates requires specific information regarding the event, function, provision of services, or use of facility for which the certificate is to be issued. All requests for a COI must be submitted in writing to the Office of Risk Management by a Mines faculty or staff member needing the certificate. All certificates are issued specifically for the intended purpose.
To request a Certificate of Insurance, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Legal name of Company and address
- Reason for the request that is 1-2 sentences max. (e.g., use of JeffCo open space for geology field session)
- Dates that the certificate needs to encompass
