Requirements for Contractors, Grantees, and Permittees

Pursuant to Section 202(b) of the District of Columbia Procurement Practices Act of 1985 (PPA), effective February 21, 1986 (DC Law 6-85; DC Official Code §2-302.02(b)); and Chapter 27 of Title 27 of the D.C Municipal Regulations, the purpose of the contract insurance requirement policy is to establish a process for:

  1. Determining the amount and type of insurance to be required in procurement contracts
  2. Standardizing insurance clauses, and to minimize risk to the District.

The contract insurance requirement policy also requires contracting officers to inform vendors of the minimum insurance requirements to do business with the District and it requires contracting and procurement officers to send Statements of Work for review and approval to the Office of Risk Management Insurance Program Officer prior to the issuance of a solicitation or awarding a contract involving a procurement over $100,000.
