Provide our client with a budget analysis of projected premium allocation contribution amount from the Wrap Program participants that assists our client in deciding whether to contract for these services

Obtain copies of the Wrap Program participants’ insurance policies and other documents for determining an appropriate allocation of the insurance credit amount

Educate and communicate with Wrap Program participants if the insurance policies do not provide adequate detail or significant pricing information for an allocation to be made 


CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE TRACKING

Insurance Tracking is an auditing service provided to compliment wrap administration or as a separate service. The Insurance Tracking service includes tracking each contractors' insurance for compliance with the contract insurance requirements.  Each certificate and its endorsements are reviewed, stored and managed to ensure that each contractor is compliant with the insurance requirements, preferably before the contractor's starts work on the project, and at the contractor's policy renewals. The Insurance Tracking service provides the highest level of security for contractors, projects owners, and developers as it analyses all endorsements, policy limits, and wrap exclusions found in contractor policies. Our staff works directly with subcontractors and their agents, brokers and underwriters to ensure there is coverage for claims made against all parties involved both on and off the construction site. As a core risk management exercise, this service is highly recommended for those that want an expert review of their contractors' insurance, especially with most contractors having wrap exclusions on their commercial general liability insurance policies that voids their insurance if there is a wrap policy on the project.
