TIME: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

This CLE webinar will analyze some of the potential coverage gaps and other coverage pitfalls possible in owner controlled insurance program (OCIP) and contractor controlled insurance program (CCIP) policies, and practical steps that the wrap sponsor and subcontractors can take to prevent or limit risk exposure.

OCIP and CCIP policies are designed to reduce costs on construction projects and provide owners and contractors more control over risk management.  Once the province of very large commercial contracts, these wrap programs have become more common in recent years, partly due to the increase in construction defect litigation.

While designed to include owners, general contractors, and subcontractors under one insurance program, there can be coverage gaps and other coverage pitfalls with wrap policies, especially if the programs are not set up and implemented carefully.

Key issues include the proper enrollment of subcontractors, and the interplay with CGL and other insurance policies of both the sponsor and the subs.  Without careful consideration to the policy forms, e.g. "other insurance" provisions, the goal of optimizing the coverage from the intended primary policy may be frustrated.

Listen as our authoritative panel of insurance attorneys analyzes coverage gaps and other pitfalls that may arise in OCIP/CCIP policies.  The panel will discuss practical steps OCIP/CCIP sponsors and subcontractors can take to prevent or limit risk exposure.
