Request for Proposals


The City of Surrey (the “City”) is seeking an experienced Insurance Broker (the “Consultant”) capable of representing the City’s risk to the commercial insurance market and achieving favourable rates of insurance on a consistent basis.



The City of Surrey is committed to the principle that an independent brokers’ compensation for the placement of the City’s insurance be solely from the fees paid by the City.  Brokers who receive contingent commissions or incentives based on volume, profitability of the book of business or any other funds, credits or rewards from any insurer, re-insurer, managing underwriter or wholesaler should disclose this in the RFP response.   All commissions paid for placing business which is not part of the annual renewal program should be disclosed.

The City of Surrey, through good risk management and claims processes, established very favourable rates and wordings with underwriters. This combined with consulting services which will increase the City’s ability to effectively and efficiently manage the City’s financial exposure to risk.
