News of the Association of Ontario Agricultural Societies.

The OAAS is in the process of selecting a broker/insurance company partner to assist in the potential development of an insurance program for up to 220 individual agricultural societies that make up OAAS, and to continue to provide insurance and risk management services in the areas contained within this RFP.

Through this RFP, the OAAS seeks to:

  • Select the successful partnering brokerage firm or insurance company
  • Develop the commercial insurance coverages and risk management strategies to benefit their members with the anticipation that resulting agreed to program will be announced at the 2014 Convention in Toronto
  • Hold a series of 4 (or more) scheduled working group meetings, as part of the development process, which will include representation from the broker/insurance company, members of OAAS and the General Manager of OAAS
  • Upon the successful development of an agreed to risk management strategy, the successful partnering brokerage firm or insurance company will be named as the “Official Insurance Provider of the OAAS”
  • Specify the terms and conditions that would govern any resulting party

This RFP states the instructions for submitting proposals, and the procedures and criteria by which the successful proponent will be selected. All proposals are subject to the terms and conditions of this RFP.
