Reason for Decision:  Harrow collaboratively procured its corporate external insurance contracts through the Insurance London Consortium under the terms of a legal agreement effective since 2010.

 

The decision to insure was driven by the need to protect the financial position and stability of the authority by providing financial protection against losses, which was achieved through insurance risk transfer. In addition, there were statutory requirements in relation to motor insurance and engineering inspections, which would be met through the commissioning of these contracts.
