Within fifteen (15) days after written notification by the District that the bid proposal has been accepted and receipt of the contract for signature, the Contractor must provide two (2) copies of executed Certificates of Insurance on the ISO ACORD 25 Form or current equivalent with the District, indicating that the bidder has obtained and will continue to carry commercial general liability, comprehensive business auto liability, workers compensation/employers’ liability, excess (umbrella), professional liability and pollution liability as required. The initial and renewal Certificates of Insurance must identify the MSD Project and Contract by name and reference number. A sample Certificate of Insurance Form in the format required is attached to these specifications. b. The Contractor shall carry and maintain adequate liability insurance as required by this Contract with a company or companies satisfactory to the District and which are: ▪ Licensed to do business in the State of Missouri (Admitted) with a financial strength rating of “A-” or better and a financial size category of Class VI or higher per AM Best Company; or ▪ Not licensed in the State of Missouri (Non-admitted) with a financial strength rating of “A” or better and a financial size category of Class IX or higher per AM Best Company; or ▪ For workers compensation coverage only, organized pursuant to the Missouri Insurance Company Act (R.S.Mo §§ 287.900 to 287.920). The insurance policy/policies will be acceptable regardless of the above requirements if the insurance company furnishes a bond guarantee or policy containing a provision (commonly referred to as a “cut-through” endorsement) giving all claimants thereunder a direct right of recovery against the company’s reinsurer, provided the reinsurer meets one of the qualifications listed above. c. The amounts of coverage required herein shall not be construed to limit the liability of the Contractor under the indemnification provision of the contract. d. The District (including its Trustees, directors, officers, agents and employees), the Consultant ___________________________, and the following Sub-consultants _____________________________, shall be named as “Additional Insured(s)” for all required insurance coverage (with the exception of pollution liability, professional liability and workers compensation coverage) with respect to the __________________________________ (state project). The Contractor shall require that its sub-contractors name the District and the Contractor as “Additional Insured(s)”. The additional insured coverage must be sufficiently broad to afford the District coverage as required by the indemnification provision of the Contract and must include products and completed operations coverage included within the commercial general liability policy. e. In the event the Contractor is a joint venture, the following additional requirements shall apply: Page 8 of 12 05/30/2020 1. If the joint venture secures separate stand-alone coverage in the name of the joint venture for one or more of the required lines of coverage, each of the requirements set forth below shall apply to that coverage and the certificate of insurance shall so indicate. The District may request copies of the endorsements &/or policies of insurance to verify that coverage is in the name of the joint venture. 2. If separate stand-alone coverage in the name of the joint venture is not provided for one or more of the required lines of coverage, then for each such line of required coverage, the following requirements shall apply: (i) the coverages of each of the joint venture members must provide specific endorsements to each such line of required coverage; (ii) The joint venture shall be endorsed to each such line of coverage; (iii) The joint venture and each member of the joint venture must be “named insureds” for each such line of coverage; and (iv) The certificates of insurance for each such joint venture m ember shall be provided and shall reflect compliance with these requirements. It is anticipated that business auto and workers compensation/employers’ liability coverage will not be secured in the name of the joint venture, and will fall in this category. f.

Page 11 of 12 05/30/2020 CANCELLATION: Should any of the required insurance coverage be cancelled prior to the expiration date, the Contractor must provide at least sixty (60) days written notice to the District prior to the cancellation.

Page 12 of 12 05/30/2020 Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District 2350 Market Street St. Louis, Missouri 63103 RE: Insurance Requirements for Annual Pre-Qualification Metropolitan St Louis Sewer District (MSD) requires contractors to be prequalified prior to bidding on Capital Improvement Projects. In the prequalification process, contractors must demonstrate their ability to perform in the event they are awarded a contract, including meeting the District’s insurance requirements. MSD has certain contract requirements relating to contractor insurance coverage, including increasing the limits for certain coverage and requiring pollution liability coverage. The District recognizes that these additional coverage requirements impose additional costs upon contractors. In an effort to alleviate any short term burden on contractors, for pre-qualification and bid purposes only, MSD is willing to accept a letter signed by both the contractor and the contractor’s insurance broker stating that the contractor has been approved for the additional insurance coverage and that the contractor will obtain all required coverage and with the limits required in the event a contract is awarded to the contractor. Further, the letter must state affirmatively that the policy will be endorsed and coverage will be in place in the event a contract is awarded. Additionally, the letter must state that in the event a contract is awarded and insuranc e is not secured within the required timeframe, the contractor will forfeit its bid bond on the project and will be determined non- responsive. These affirmative representations must be repeated as part of any bid submitted by a contractor that does not have the required coverage in place at the time of the bid. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Sincerely, Betsy Schubert Purchasing Manager
