Resource Highlight: MCAA’s What Are the Pros and Cons of OCIPs and CCIPs?

September 30, 2022

Subcontractors are often required to enroll in “wrap-up” insurance and loss control programs that cover the owner, general contractor (GC) and all subcontractors on a project. MCAA’s What Are the Pros and Cons of OCIPs and CCIPs? explains the benefits and drawbacks of two commonly used types of wrap-ups: the Owner Controlled Insurance Program (OCIP) and the Contractor Controlled Insurance Program (CCIP). It’s just one of MCAA’s educational resources that are free to MCAA members as a benefit of membership.

The bulletin covers:

  • Considerations when working under a wrap-up
  • The contract terms of most wrap-ups
  • Potential estimating challenges
  • Payroll and claims reporting requirements
  • Documentation that should be provided to the project sponsor
  • What to watch for
  • Exclusions for certain sub-subcontractors
  • Claims considerations
  • Post project considerations

It also includes definitions and other information.
