Vendor Insurance

To Contractor (Vender/Service Provider):

At least ten (10) Business days prior to the date upon which work, including any preliminary survey or similar work, is to be initiated under your agreement with Babson College (“College”) (collectively, “Work”), you or your company (“Contractor”) is required to submit an original Certificate of Insurance in a form satisfactory to the College. An original signed Certificate of Insurance will be accepted via fax directly from the insurance company if accompanied by their letterhead cover sheet.

If your coverage is renewed or replaced during the term of your contract with the College, the Contractor agrees to provide at least thirty (30) days prior to said expiration date, a new certificate of insurance evidencing insurance coverage as provided herein for not less than the remainder of the term of the contract, or for a period of not less than one (1) year. All insurers used shall have a rating of at least A-VIII in the latest edition of Best’s Insurance Reports.

New certificates of insurance are subject to the approval of the College, and the Contractor agrees that no work or services shall be performed prior to its receiving such approval. In the event Contractor fails to keep in effect at all times insurance coverage as herein provided, the College may in addition to any other remedies it may have, terminate the Contract upon written notice.

If the Contractor employs the services of a subcontractor (or other person or entity to complete the Work) (each, a “Subcontractor”), then Contractor shall either require each Subcontractor to procure and to maintain during the term of the subcontract insurance of the types and in the amounts specified below. The Contractor further agrees that it will be responsible for collecting the appropriate evidence of insurance from all Subcontractors in a form satisfactory to the College.

All certificates shall be sent or delivered to: Jeannette Angles, Risk Manager, Nichols Building, Babson College, Babson Park, MA 02457-0310.

If these requirements are not met, the certificate of insurance will be returned to the Contractor/Subcontractor for correction and resubmission. Please keep in mind incorrect submission of the certificate of insurance may delay payment for services rendered.
