Question: "Do we need to have $2,000,000 insurance coverage? Or will $1,000,000 be o.k.?
Answer: The RFP requires $2,000,000 insurance coverage, so $1,000,000 would not be sufficient. This amount is a requirement for all county contracts this year and is stipulated under Conduct of Business section 4 on page six:
4. The Contractor shall procure, obtain and shall maintain in effect throughout the term of the contract, a policy of liability insurance naming Benton County as an additional insured with policy limits not less than $2,000,000 per person, $2,000,000 per accident for bodily injury, $2,000,000 for property damage for all activities and operations conducted pursuant to this agreement; and a combined single limit of $2,000,000. “Garage Keepers” policy limits not less than $50,000 for comprehensive and collision. If the liability limits of the Oregon Tort Claims Act are increased during the terms of the contract, Contractor shall procure insurance in an amount at least equal to the revised liability limits.
