Property InsuranceThe State of Georgia owns or occupies over 15,000 buildings throughout the state, and pursuant to O.C.G.A. 50-16-9, DOAS Risk Management Services Division, covers more than $30 billion worth of state owned buildings and personal property (contents) through a combination of self-insurance (State Owned Building and Personal Property Agreement) and excess property insurance purchased thru a commercial insurance brokerage firm.
In addition to providing insurance to all state owned building and personal property, DOAS makes available, at the state agency's option, a Special Property All Risk Agreement, to cover an agency's exposure to loss of money and securities, watercraft used on inland lakes, fine arts, mobile equipment (e.g. backhoes, forklifts, brush hogs, golf carts), personal property temporarily away from premises (e.g. audio/visual equipment taken to a conference) or leased equipment (e.g. copying machines, fax machines, modular classroom or office).
There are also a handful of state agencies that have aircraft and/or watercraft (that navigates coastal waters) exposures that receive their primary property coverage directly from a commercial insurance policy DOAS purchases thru a commercial insurance brokerage firm.
Should your agency experience loss or damage to property covered under any of the property insurance coverages described above, please complete a Notice of Loss form or contact DOAS/RMS at 404-656-6245.
DOAS provides building and content insurance coverage based on properties and values reported by each agency into BLLIP,(Buildings, Land, Lease and Inventoried property). This system enables registered users to access and update their existing information online.
