West Texas A&M University coordinates with Texas A&M University System Risk Management to purchase and manage insurance policies and self-insured programs. All insurance purchases must have the prior review and approval of the WTAMU Risk Management Office, in conjunction with the Texas A&M University System Risk Management Office. WTAMU as a state institution is protected by the doctrine of sovereign immunity with limits of liability controlled by the Texas Tort Claims Act.
TAMUS Auto & Motorized Vehicle Insurance
The Texas A&M University System (TAMUS) auto and motorized vehicle coverage does not cover any loss for accidents involving personal use. A state-owned fleet vehicle should not be used for personal reasons and would likewise not be covered.
Regarding students, student groups, or any users of WTAMU vehicles, TAMUS has no liability coverage unless they are WTAMU employees in course and scope of employment.
Third Party Event Insurance
The Texas A&M University System (TAMUS), as part of the University Risk Management Insurance Association (URMIA), has access to the URMIA Tenants and Users Liability Insurance Program (TULIP). The program allows third party groups to purchase insurance for specific functions to be held on the WTAMU campus. It is designed to provide low cost general liability insurance/accident medical coverage to third party users of WTAMU facilities. It is a web-based process.
The third party group can access the website for quotes at https://tulip.ajgrms.com/ . If this is the first time the third party group will use the site, they will need to register to create an account. Please contact the WTAMU Risk Management Office (#806-651-2961) for the institution ID. The quoting and purchase process will take place between the third party group and the insurer directly.
