Whether or not you select IMA for your project, keep the following in mind when selecting your insurance program:

  • The most important work will come during the pre-construction phase.
  • Insurance is not the most important thing you have to do. However, you can’t move forward without it.
  • Insurance costs will account for approximately one-half of one percent of your budget. Be concerned about the proper coverage instead of the cheapest price.
  • Not all insurance is equal. There are differences in terms and conditions. It is important to have the correct coverages in place to deal with your risks.
  • Optimize broker services by selecting a partner to market your account with an experience in biofuels and an understanding of the scope of services.
  • Coordination of insurance requirements among participants
