All vendors doing business with Southern Illinois University (SIU) must have a current Certificate of Insurance on file. The current status of a vendor’s insurance certificate may be determined by viewing the insurance expiration dates for a particular vendor within the AIS system. In order to protect SIU from risk exposures, view Risk Management’s Indemnification and Insurance Requirements.
