Insurance & Claims Management Policies are written for the faculty and staff of Georgia Tech. They are intended to assist those who may have questions concerning Georgia Tech insurance coverage and the submission and payment of claims. Final approval of all Georgia Tech claim submissions rests with the Georgia Department of Administrative Services, Risk Management Services Division (hereinafter “DOAS/RMSD”). In addition, any liability claim that goes into suit is generally controlled by the State Attorney General’s Office.

Insurance & Claims Management is charged with the responsibility of protecting the assets and resources of Georgia Tech. This involves the identification of assets exposed to loss. It includes the reduction of the loss potential and the selection of the most appropriate technique for treating the loss exposure.

Generally, Insurance & Claims Management is called upon to provide the various types of insurance coverage required by Georgia Tech and its employees, and to manage and investigate all claims, including collection of money from an at-fault party's insurance company.

Insurance & Claims Management may require a Certificate of Insurance and/or signed Release and Waiver of Liability when formalized activities, groups, concerts, shows, performances, athletic events and presentations require the use of campus facilities.

Any Georgia Tech group, department or individual contemplating any activity such as described above or involved in activities promoted by others is to email, call 404-894-5000 or write Insurance & Claims Management (mail code 0300) as soon as possible, but no later than 14 days before the event date. A Special Events Questionnaire Form available from our website must be completed for us to address all risk factors and insurance needs.
