Certificates of Insurance
All vendors wishing to do business with Northwestern University must provide evidence of insurance to the Office of Risk Management prior to the contract start date.
A Certificate of Insurance is a document from an insurer that evidences insurance policies in place at the time of issuance. A Certificate of Insurance is also referred to as a COI.
It is important to note that a Certificate of Insurance is only evidence of insurance coverage in effect at the time of issuance of the certificate; it is not an insurance policy nor does it convey any rights to the certificate holder. It is provided to support a contractual agreement.
