General Guidelines/Applicable Policies
Georgia Tech Insurance & Claims Management shall receive all evidence of activity that relates to risk to the Institute, its inhabitants and others, as well as property owned by, or in the care of the Institute. Such documentation may be in the form of Incident Reports, but other documents may suffice.

Procedures: 
  1. Documentation will be reviewed by Georgia Tech Insurance & Claims Management.
  2. Incident Reports are numbered and certain ones will be filed by Georgia Tech Insurance & Claims Management. To qualify for filing a report must pertain to some activity of a serious enough nature to warrant investigation by Georgia Tech Insurance & Claims Management. Incident Reports that reveal some innocuous activity or to an activity outside the jurisdiction of Georgia Tech Insurance & Claims Management will not be processed.
  3. Incident reports that are filed will remain in the file until additional supporting information is received or until the Georgia Tech Insurance & Claims Management determines that an investigation shall commence. At that time the incident report shall be segregated as described in the next paragraph.
  4. Georgia Tech Insurance & Claims Management shall maintain said records in separate blue partitioned folders. An identification file number will be assigned and affixed to the top of the folder.
