Owner-Controlled Insurance Programs (OCIP)

The Controller's Office and the City's Risk Management Office convened a working group in September 2002 to evaluate the City's Owner-Controlled Insurance Programs (OCIP). An OCIP is an alternative method to provide insurance coverage where an owner, in this case the City, arranges, procures and manages the insurance program collectively for all contractors working on a construction project. The working group report provides 64 recommendations about existing and future OCIPs. The recommendations address general policy as well as issues of implementation such as insurance program design, claims management and adjudication, and the city's legal environment. A central recommendation in the report is the formation of a citywide oversight body called the Construction Risk Management Committee to review and authorize expansions and/or creations of OCIPs.
