Revision Date November 1, 2021


DFPS mitigates both agency and client risk by ensuring adequate insurance requirements are included in procurements and contracts; and that contractor’s insurance coverage is verified throughout the term of the contract.

DFPS requires all non-governmental entities to carry adequate insurance coverage which are broken down by:

  • Specified insurance coverage by service type, and
  • Standard insurance coverage requirements as documented within the Uniform Terms and Conditions (UTCs).
