Certificates of Insurance
Businesses, including Alvernia, often require a certificate of insurance (COI) when outsiders use their facilities or borrow equipment. A COI provides proof of insurance coverage in case there is damage to the facility or equipment and the user is liable as part of a contract, purchase order, or other agreement.
Current certificates of liability insurance – Can be found in the “S:\Business Office\Insurance Certificates & Info” folders:

The reoccurring certificates are saved alphabetically under CERTIFICATES OF INSURANCE 2013-2014.
