'To Whom it May Concern’ letters
The University’s Broker, Henderson Ltd, issues ‘To Whom it May Concern’ letters on renewal each year:

These provide details of the University’s liability policies (Employers' Liability/Public Liability/Professional Indemnity), which can be issued to any outside party with whom the University contracts, bids or collaborates, as confirmation that the University has the appropriate liability covers in place.

This does not indemnify the outside party in respect of their liabilities.  It merely demonstrates the University has its covers in place.  Reciprocal exchange of this information should be made with all third parties, including Consultants, so that notification of a potential claim can be given on a timely basis.

When sending the ‘To Whom it May Concern’ letter to any outside party as confirmation that the University has the appropriate liability covers in place, the Insurance Office should be made aware of the proposed activity so that the Insurer can be consulted if necessary.
