Provide a standard for consistent insurance-related language and requirements for use in Agency contract documents. While the standards referenced in the manual have been developed via a collaborative effort involving all of the participating agencies and insurance industry representatives, and the Council believes these standards to best meet the needs of the Agencies operating in the current contract and insurance industry environments, the Council also recognizes that each agency faces its own unique operations and contracting needs. Therefore, it is understood that each Agency may find a need to deviate from the standards presented here as it deems necessary.
