In concert with the University’s Legal office the department of Campus Safety, Insurance & Risk Services reviews the insurance requirements, hold harmless and indemnification provisions contained in any contract, lease or waiver document. Indemnification refers to one party agreeing to fully reimburse the other party for claims, costs or damages arising from the terms of the contract. Scrutiny of contracts and agreements is important to ensure that the University is not attracting unacceptable risk. Please note that all contracts must first be referred to the University’s legal office in accordance with the University’s Legal Agreement and Contract Review Process.
