The State of New York and SUNY Brockport fall under a “self-insurance” program.

The State of New York does not purchase insurance against liability arising out of the acts of the State, State University, or their respective officers or employees. Exceptions are made for policies that we currently have in place which cover fine arts, monies/securities for the Bursar’s Office and coverage for off site instruction.

Procurement & Payment Services can request insurance coverage for other exceptions if deemed appropriate, but the cost is typically high. A “Certificate in Lieu of Insurance” that addresses liability can also be issued. This is typically used for off-campus events.

Please contact Mark Stacy with any questions regarding insurance coverage.
