When the other party has required a legal document be signed and wants proof of insurance, please send complete, legible copy of (any PERMIT, APPLICATION, CONTRACT AGREEMENT, LEASE or other) documents to our insurance Administrator so obligations can be determined. Please see the Diocesan insurance requirements and follow the step by step directions on COI Procedures
Tenant Users Liability Insurance Policy, or TULIP, is an easy to use, fast method of insuring most types of events and activities taking place at various facilities and venues throughout the United States.
What is a TULIP Program?
The TULIP Program provides low cost general liability insurance to “third party” users of various venues and facilities for events. It protects both the user and the facility against claims by guests who may be injured as a result of attending an event.
Events may range from seminars, receptions and weddings, to sporting events and concerts. Your premium quote is based upon the risk associated with the given event or activity, the number of days coverage is needed, the number of attendees and if there are any special requirements, such as alcohol liability, food service, etc.
The Diocese has standard forms that must be completed when permission is given to others to use our premises. This form is to be filled out by the parish administrator or pastor and returned to the Facilities, Risk and Insurance Department after purchasing the Tulip event insurance policy (as stated above).
All non-profit, religious, educational or charitable groups who would like to rent or use our facilities may do so using their organization’s insurance and by providing to us a certificate of insurance naming the Roman Catholic Bishop of San Jose as additional insured and meet our insurance requirements as stated on the Category 2 Organization/Outside User Agreement. This form should be filled out by the administrator or pastor/principal and returned to the Facilities, Risk and Insurance Department along with the certificate of insurance at least two weeks prior to the event.
Carnival companies and all vendors at the Carnival must provide evidence of insurance naming Diocese as ‘additional insured’. Liquor License must be obtained if alcohol is made available. Food Permit must be obtained if food is sold. Coordinate early (45 days in advance) with the Facilities, Insurance and Risk Management.
A claim form must be filed for any student injured (while participating in a Diocesan approved activity) and taken for medical attention. Section A is to be filled out by an administrator, pastor/principal and given to the child’s guardian. The child’s guardian will submit the claim form and all (medical) out of pocket receipts to Myers, Stevens, Toohey, Co., Inc. for reimbursements. This insurance is secondary.
All parish and school groups planning an overnight trip involving youth (ages 1 to 17) must purchase additional insurance for each child attending. This secondary layer of insurance protects the family, the parish/school and the Dioceses. Completed applications may be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or Fax to 949.348.0963.
Events where participants engage in physical activity may require waiver and release forms. Contact the Facilities, Insurance and Risk Department if you have any questions.
