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:

  • 2013-2014 Certificates – This folder contains the certificates issued by Alvernia to its various business associates.  The reoccurring certificates are saved alphabetically under CERTIFICATES OF INSURANCE 2013-2014.  Note:  If you print a certificate from this document, please be careful to only print the one (1) copy you need and not the entire 100+ page document.
  • Vendors & Contractors - Certificates of Insurance – This folder contains certificates issued to Alvernia from its contractors and vendors.
