Multiple Prime contracts with UCIP

programs-and-processes/university-controlled-insurance-program/mp_ucip_instructions_to_bidders1.docxThe University of California uses a University Controlled Insurance Program (UCIP) for construction projects with a projected construction value of $25,000,000 and over (total for all phases). 

The Multiple Prime with UCIP contract templates listed below must be used on all UCIP projects using the Multiple Prime delivery method. The following list provides links to UCIP specific documents only. Download the base Multiple Prime template documents from the Multiple Prime page. Multiple Prime is an administratively burdensome and riskier method of project delivery. Consult with Office of the General Counsel and Office of the President before committing to this project delivery method. 

The following documents are approved by the Office of the President and Office of the General Counsel for use by the Facility. A facility may place its logo on the Cover page. Each template document starts with a cover sheet and set of instructions. These instructions are for the Facility only and should not be added to the Contract Documents when distributed to the Bidder or Contractor.

Documents identified as "core documents" shall not be modified by the Facility. Any revisions to these templates are made and issued by the Office of the President.
