Additional Information

The contractor purchases the policy to provide coverage for vicarious liability the client (project owner) incurs as a result of the contractor's acts or omissions on the project. The OCP policy also responds to liability arising out of the insured's own acts or omissions in connection with its general supervision of the contractor's operations.
