LATITUDE's insurance coverage is tailored for government contractors with 20 to 100 employees who want their foreign insurance bundled into a single, easy to manage solution for their businesses. LATITUDE provides overseas coverage for government contractors working in engineering, facilities management, information technology consulting and life support services providers. Latitude also provides foreign coverage for government contractors in food service, housekeeping, janitorial services, and light construction such as electrical, heating, carpentry, and mechanical.

Government contractor insurance under LATITUDE includes the required Defense Base Act coverage as well as Employer's Liability, Medical Evacuation and Repatriation Services. Additional Latitude coverage includes General Liability and Automobile Liability, Business Travel Accident, and Kidnap and Ransom insurance.

"Every government contractor's coverage needs are diverse and frequently complex," said Steve Eginoire, Chairman of Lockton Affinity. "LATITUDE helps smaller government contractors maximize coverage and minimize cost by tailoring a single insurance program around their specific contracts. We make the process hassle-free by providing them with a single partner who delivers comprehensive support, claims advocacy, and customer service."

Lockton Affinity's LATITUDE program is supported by an experienced team. Sara Payne, a 25-year veteran of Defense Base Act insurance programs, is leading the launch of LATITUDE. Lockton has teamed with a leading global insurance carrier to provide the coverage.

The LATITUDE team is offering contractors [and brokers] free program reviews to identify ways to improve their foreign insurance program. Latitude program reviews are available by calling 800-291-6182 or by connecting to www.latitudeglobalcontractorinsurance.com
