The state self-insures its owned and non-owned transit exposures. It also purchases a separate transit policy for shipments of high valued equipment greater than $100,000 when the State is responsible for its value during shipment of such property either over land, air, or water.
The value of items being shipped must be reported to BSRM on a per shipment basis. Property shipped to a given location and subsequently returned would be considered two shipments and should be reported separately for each way. For all state agencies, shipments greater than $10,000 should be reported via the online form.
For UW-owned property, all shipments, overseas and domestic that are valued at $50,000 and greater are required to be reported via the online form. All domestic carry-on equipment/instruments with values of greater than $50,000 should also be reported.
