To report a claim, forward appropriate documentation to Willis, the OCIP administrator, via fax to (718) 472-8770 or via email to SCA Claims and Notice of Accident (24 hours/day). Please retain a copy for your files and submit one copy to Willis and another copy to the School Construction Authority's Project Officer and/or Construction Manager.

IN CASE OF SERIOUS INJURY, PLEASE CONTACT WILLIS IMMEDIATELY AT 718-472-8778.

It is essential that all claims be thoroughly investigated by the Contractor, Safety Inspector and the insurance company. All available facts. evidence and information, including the names of witnesses, must be secured while such information is available. To ensure this is accomplished, complete an SCA Incident Report.

If a contractor makes repairs or hires other contractors to make repairs when damage is caused to a third party, this does not in itself mean that the insurance company will reimburse the contractor for the cost of repairs. The policy provisions clearly state the contractor is not allowed to make voluntary repairs or payments until the insurance company has had sufficient time to evaluate the loss. By making repairs or making voluntary payments, the insurance company may find it difficult to evaluate the loss and may deny the claim.

Failure to promptly report an incident or a claim may be construed as LATE NOTICE and coverage for such claim may be denied.

Post-Accident Claim Mitigation

  • Contractors are responsible for securing any and all equipment for post-accident investigations.
  • Contractors will comply and aid all post-accident investigations
  • Contractors will notify ACE/ESIS and Willis if they decide to pay a claimant's full or partial wages while disabled due to a worker's compensation claim
  • Contractors will respond to all claim related inquiries from ESIS in a timely manner

Owner Controlled Insurance Program (OCIP)

The OCIP is a centralized insurance, claims, and loss control program that covers the City of New York, the Department of Education, the SCA and all eligible contractors and subcontractors of all tiers. Workers' Compensation and Employer's Liability, General Liability, Excess Liability, Contractors' Pollution Liability, Builder's Risk, and Art Installation Floater coverage are provided on a project "wrap-up" basis for contractors and subcontractors of any tier, which have been properly approved and enrolled, while performing construction work on SCA projects. The Art Installation Floater only applies to entities that are awarded art projects.

Process

All construction managers, general contractors and subcontractors working on SCA construction sites must be enrolled in the OCIP. To become enrolled, complete a Request for Insurance form. General Contractors/Construction Managers and WICKS subcontractors submit the Request for Insurance form with their bid packages/proposals. Subcontractors must complete a Subcontractor Approval Form and submit the accompanying Request for Insurance form via the Vendor Access System (VAS). Upon approval in VAS, the subcontractor will be enrolled in the OCIP.
