Insurance and Bond 2022 4M

  • Certificate of Insurance (COI) - All contractors must have a minimum of $1,000,000 Liability coverage and $4,000,000 combined Aggregate coverage.  The Aggregate coverage can be a combination of the General Aggregate amount and an Umbrella Policy.  See Example
  • Bond - The performance bond required by Ogden City is called a License & Permit Bond.  All contractors excavating deeper than 12 inches in the Right-of-Way must have a $25,000 bond.  Those contractors that are only doing paving and flatwork can carry a $5,000 bond.  These bonds are not cash bonds, but bonds that can be acquired through insurance agents for a prescribed period of time (2 years to continuous).  See Example

It is typically the contractor (or subcontractor) that is doing the work that must carry the insurance and bonding.  It is allowable for a General Contractor to include subcontractors on their coverage at their own risk.

It is NOT allowable to combine multiple policies from different companies to meet the mimimum Insurance and Bond requirements.
