accept our apologies for the delay in responding to you. 

 

For your ease of reference, our answers are set out following your
original questions as shown below:

Fraud, Corporate Liability and Management Liability.

Does your institution procure insurance via a consortia framework? If so,
please specify which consortia and framework.

framework. 

How long has your institution procured insurance from the current
provider(s)?
Various - Between 1 to 6 years depending on cover.

Does your institution engage the services of an insurance broker?

When does your current insurance policy(s) expire?

adhere to their recommendations for appropriate cover & supplier.

have any queries about the above, please get back to me.

request by emailing [email address]. Internal reviews will be conducted
