Vendor Liability (Procurement)

Vendor Liability (Procurement)  

OVERVIEW

Vendor Liability Insurance provides protection against claims of bodily injury and property damage liability for work performed by selected Vendors and Contractors who are under contract with The Regents of the University of California, and the litigation costs to defend against such claims. In addition, miscellaneous errors and omissions coverage provides protection against professional errors that result in financial harm to a third party.


Alternatively, if you are an exhibitor, performer or vendor at a campus event, you do not require Vendor/Contractor Liability insurance, rather, you will need one of the following to meet your insurance requirements:

  • If you are an exhibitor, performer or vendor at a campus event, and you are not hosting this event, please click Exhibitor/Vendor Liability Application for the application.  Once completed, please email the application to plsdsteam.service@mercer.com.
  • If you are you are an exhibitor, performer or vendor AND you are hosting the event, please click Event Liability (non-UC Parties) to be directed to the appropriate online application or a Event Liability (non-UC Parties) Application Form that may be printed.
