• A Controlled Insurance Program (CIP) is a centralized insurance program in which one party provides insurance on behalf of all (or most) parties working on a construction site or on a specific site. Commonly referred to as “debriefing”, CIP is most often used on individual projects, but other uses include contract maintenance of a large plant or facility (see Debriefing Services) or on an ongoing basis for multiple construction projects (see Debriefing) ). Generally, the coverages provided under the CIP include commercial general liability (CGL), workers’ compensation and general liability. CIPs offer a number of benefits, including greater control over the amount of coverage, potentially lower project insurance costs, and reduced litigation. CIPs can be purchased by owner (OCIP) or contractor (CCIP).
