Insurance and Liability

The Insurance Office serves as the liaison with the Department of Financial Services (DFS) and the Department of Management Services (DMS) for issues related to insurance .

The university obtains coverages for auto liability, general liability, and building and contents coverage through the State Risk Management Trust Fund which is administered by DFS. Additional insurance coverages can be purchased through DMS at a cost to university departments (Ex. electronic equipment owned or leased by the university). Insurance purchased through DMS is coverage offered to all Florida governmental entities and that includes UF.

The Insurance Office oversees the investigation of claims and suits as well as the negotiation of any third-party settlements. From a University-wide perspective, the Insurance Office acts as an advisor to the University in situations relating to exposure, risk and insurance.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
