All drivers in New York are lawfully expected to have an auto insurance policy with something like 25/50/10 in liability limits alongside a host of extra inclusions. This incorporates: $25,000 bodily injury per individual. $50,000 bodily injury per accident.

You additionally have the choice to grow this fundamental protection. For an extra top notch, you can buy higher inclusion cutoff points of Supplementary Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists (SUM) inclusion of up to $250,000 per individual per accident and $500,000 per accident.

Insurance least necessities

The simplest method for fulfilling New York’s monetary obligation regulation is by buying a vehicle insurance policy. Be that as it may, remember: Getting only the base inclusion cutoff points can assist you with saving money on vehicle insurance, however you’ll be more presented to the monetary dangers of an accident. Here is a gander at what least inclusion offers alongside discretionary insurance:

· Bodily injury (BI): On the off chance that you cause a fender bender, this inclusion pays for the other party’s hospital expenses and vehicle fix costs.

· Property damage (PD): This inclusion pays for any property damage you cause in a accident.

· Personal injury protection (PIP): Otherwise called no-shortcoming insurance, PIP helps pay for your own hospital expenses following a fender bender. You can raise your PIP limits, yet it’s viewed as a different discretionary inclusion and called “additional PIP” or “clinical installments”.

· Uninsured motorist bodily injury (UMBI): As its name suggests, this sort of inclusion kicks in when you’re hit by an uninsured driver. It pays for your wounds.



Auto insurance policy is compulsory under the motor vehicle act, while different types of general insurance are discretionary. The law commands that each proprietor of motor vehicle should have the motor insurance policy. The requirement for vehicle insurance of third-party liability towards injury, demise or property damage is obligatory according to the motor vehicle act. Accordingly, vehicle insurance becomes significant as it isn’t just for motor vehicle proprietors to limit the gamble for their vehicle yet for the people who might get harmed or damage and so on because of vehicle hit or so on. The current review illuminates the different kinds of motor vehicle insurance in New York.


· To comprehend the requirement for purchasing an auto insurance and the strategy for guaranteeing misfortunes emerging because of motor accidents.

· To concentrate on the activities of vehicle motor insurance in New York.

· To concentrate on the pretended by NYS

· To comprehend various sorts of arrangements covered under motor insurance and Property holder’s insurance.


The main objective of the project is to set up a system to assist individuals in buying an auto insurance for your personal and commercial vehicles. The drivers would not have enough knowledge to directly reach out to the auto insurance providers or choose the affordable premium package. Our agency would be helping drivers by quoting with multiple insurances that we are contracted and pick the cheapest quote for them. We would also provide support in filing a claim, filling MV104 during any accidents or loss runs, following up with insurance for claims, assist in making premium payments to insurance and dmv services like vehicle registration, returning plates etc. On the other end, since it is difficult for the auto insurance companies to directly reach out to the insured for premium, quotes, documents and information we would be a mediator to interact with insured and provide the required information to the insurance. This way we would be charging the customers for the services provided and all get commission from the contracted auto insurance for the policies registered by our brokerage.


The business need/opportunity should be stated in business terms and should include BOTH measurable and non-measurable benefits…each objective should be numbered…

The business objectives should provide an understanding of:

· What created the need, or how the opportunity was recognized

· The magnitude of the need/opportunity

· Contributing factors, such as workload increases or staff reductions, and fiscal constraints

· An understanding of the extent to which the need/opportunity would be addressed if an appropriate alternative were implemented

· The consequences for the State and its customers if the need or opportunity is not addressed.

Understanding the magnitude of the need or opportunity, the Project Manager will be better able to estimate reasonable amounts of resources to expend in responding to it, and the extent to which a response will resolve it…

A statement of the business vision helps ensure traceability in the project…Business goals and objectives are linked back to the vision, and each project objective is also linked to the business vision…Business objectives can be stated as business measures, such as increasing profits by 20%…


Describe the proposed solution and state how it meets the business goals…

Project objectives describe the proposed solution and help define how the project supports the business objectives. Include such things as:

· Solution description.

· Benefits of doing the project. Benefits should link back to the business need or opportunity.

· The criteria by which the project will be deemed successful by key stakeholders.


· Implementation of this new service will reduce operational expenses by $200,000 per year.

· This project will be successful if delivered within 10% of the approved budget.


Deliverables are tangible products or things that the project will produce, stated at a high level…they describe what the business clients will get when the project is done…it is important to also state exclusions, or what will NOT be included in the project…deliverables will be detailed elsewhere in the project plan.


Deliverables included:

· A new service

· Recommendations on new automation

· A feasibility study

· A new voice response system

Deliverables excluded:

· Implementation of the new service

· Implementation of the feasibility study recommendations

· Maintenance of the new system

2.4 Anticipated Benefits

All projects are attempted because of some perceived business benefit…the benefit could be one of increased revenue, reduction of costs, increase market share, or any other item or combination of items…at the end of the day, there needs to be a justification for spending money on the project…these benefits help to establish that…


The introduction should include a Project Scope Statement…this statement will describe the problem that is being addressed from a SYSTEM perspective…as such, the items that follow are all from a SYSTEM perspective…what is the SYSTEM trying to achieve?…what are the SYSTEM goals and objects?…what are the SYSTEM deliverables?…

3.1 Functionality Inclusions

A system’s proposed solution contains many deliverables…not all deliverables are always implemented immediately…sometimes it takes many iterations…for each of the project deliverables, identify which ones are “In Scope” (i.e., to be implemented in this iterations), and which ones are “Out of Scope” (i.e., to be implemented at a later time)

In this section, describe each specific piece of functionality or elements related to the project that is included within the project…each item should be numbered for reference…

3.2 Functionality Exclusion

A system’s proposed solution contains many deliverables…not all deliverables are always implemented immediately…sometimes it takes many iterations…for each of the project deliverables, identify which ones are “In Scope” (i.e., to be implemented in this iterations), and which ones are “Out of Scope” (i.e., to be implemented at a later time)

In this section, describe each specific piece of functionality or elements related to the project that are NOT included in the project…each item should be numbered…

NOTE: In additional to the write ups in sections 3.1 and 3.2, you could also create a visual of these sections as a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)…the WBS would show the total scope, highlighting components that are in scope and out of scope…

3.3 Completion and Acceptance Criteria

A set of conditions that is required to be met before products are delivered must be created…describe what will be created in terms of deliverables (and their characteristics) and/or what constitutes a successful phase completion….

3.4 Risk Assessment

Describe the top two or three projects risk and a high-level mitigation plan…this brief assessment will be expanded in the formal Risk Management Plan, completed as part of the Project Plan…

3.5 Constraints

Constraints are limiting factors with regard to the product scope…all projects have constraints, and these need to be defined from the outset…projects have resource limits in terms of people, money, time, and equipment…

3.6 Dependency Linkages

In some cases, one project may be dependent upon another project’s deliverables…this linkage needs to be identified and its progress monitored…in other cases, a project may be dependent upon information from several agencies; the tasks and activities of the information gathering process need to monitored…

3.7 Impacts

Explain what the impact of this project is to the organization…for example, organizational change management, retraining, increases/decreases in operating budgets…

3.8 Measures of Project Success

This section describes the metrics that will be used on the project to determine how success will be measured…such metrics might include how to measure customer satisfaction or might state what a “user friendly” system is…

3.9 Assumptions

Project assumptions are factors (with regards to scope) that are considered to be true, real, or certain, without proof or demonstration…Project assumptions need to be defined before project activities take place so that time is not spent on a project that has no basis for funding…for example, support and attention will be provided by the Business Sponsor and the Steering Committee; resources will be available to adequately staff the project, etc..

3.10 Critical Success Factors

Describe those factors that will ensure the success or failure of the project…for example, the Organization Change Management Plan will be accepted, the system infrastructure environment will be adequate, etc..


The items that follow are all from a SYSTEM perspective…what is the SYSTEM trying to achieve?…what are the SYSTEM goals and objects?…what are the SYSTEM deliverables?…

4.1 Business Functional Requirements by Group

Describes by major grouping (i.e., Billing, Maintain Class Information) what the system is supposed to be providing from a business perspective…each major grouping will have a list of requirements and a brief description of what each requirement is…

For example, a major grouping would be “Membership Management.” The list of requirements under this major grouping would be things like:

· Record member information

· Track and display class schedules

· Monitor and display member access to facilities

· Generate membership cards

Each bullet item should have a 3 to 4 sentence description of what it means.

4.2 System Functional Requirements

While it is far too early to begin determine what specific hardware and software needs to be purchased and installed, it is not too early to put some parameters around some major system attributes…

For example:

· Web Services: does the business want or require a web site?…what about mobile applications?…will you be taking advantage of social media?…if so, how?…

· Security and Privacy Requirements: described in terms of physical security and system security…should include any specific sensitive data requirements…should also discuss the various roles and responsibilities of the people using the system to determine any specific role based security requirements…physical system security requirements should also be discussed…

· Recovery: in the event of a major system failure, how long can the business run without the system?…what functions needs to be available first?…are the plans to run the business without the system in the event of a major system failure?…

· System Availability and Reliability: describes the time when the application must be available for use…also, what are the projected peak times by user group?…is there a more acceptable time to bring the system down for maintenance or upgrades?…

· General Performance: what is the expected response time for queries and updates?…what are the expected volumes of transactions by month?…day?…hour?…

· Capacity: not in terms of system memory requirements or disk space; but volumes and growth trends…

Each bullet item should have a 3 to 4 sentence description of what it means…


5.1 Planned Approach

Describe how the project will be implemented….for example, discuss phasing, outsourcing plans, or the hiring of temporary resources, creation of various testing environments, etc….


6.1 Major Milestones – Estimated Schedule

Major project milestones are estimated…when the Final Scope Document is agreed to, these milestones are no longer considered estimates, but are then committed dates…

Project Kick Off05/06/22Planning and reviewing
Milestone 205/20/22Executing project
Milestone 307/14/22Finishing up project
Completion08/01/22Deliver and training

6.2 Resource Requirements – Team and Support Resources

Not all resources required are known at the scope statement development stage of a project…team and support resources may be estimated, however, based on what is known about the deliverables and the approach. Resource assumptions are stated here as well…

You need to provide a line by line description and explanation of each item…

The following personnel resources are required to complete this project:


Identify any resource assumptions…

6.2 Estimated Costs

As with major milestones, costs are estimates during the creation of the Scoping Document…when the Final Scope Document is agreed to, these initial costs no longer considered estimates, but are then committed cost…costs may vary during the course of a project…but the budget is then managed outside of this document…

You need to provide a line by line description and explanation of each item…



Typical project controls are Steering Committee Meetings, Monthly Status Reports, Risk Management assessment and mitigation planning and monitoring, Issue Management, Change Management, and Communication Management…

7.1 Checkpoint Funding Schedule

It is recommended that the project identify project checkpoints or phase review hold points based on specific project events…for example, end of business assessment phase, or some System Development Life Cycle phases, are logical checkpoints…

7.2 Weekly/Monthly Status and Steering Committee Meetings

A schedule should be created with dates for regularly scheduled status and steering committee meetings…the schedule should include the topic, the required audience, the optional audience, the frequency with dates, and the owner (i.e., who is responsible for setting up and managing the meeting)…

7.3 Weekly/Monthly Status Reports

A schedule should be created with dates for regularly scheduled weekly/monthly status reporting…the schedule should the audience required to receive the reports, the optional audience to receive the reports, the frequency with dates, and the owner (i.e., who is responsible for creating and distribution the reports)…

7.4 Risk Management

All risks to the project need to be documents…this will help to ensure the success of the project…the project risks and associated mitigation actions are monitored and controlled in accordance with the Risk Management Plan…

Every risk should have:

· RISK ID NUMBER: each risk should be given its own number for easier reference…

· IDENTIFIED RISK: explain the risk…


· PROBABILITY: the probability that this risk will occur…these are typically HIGH, MEDIUM, LOW, INFORMATIONAL…

· MITIGATION PLAN: how we plan on dealing with the risk if the worst happens…

7.5 Issue Management


Project-related issues will be tracked, prioritized, assigned, resolved, and communicated in accordance with the Project Management Procedures:

Issue descriptions, owners, resolution and status will be maintained on an issues database in a standard format.

Issues will be addressed with the Project Owner and communicated in the project status report.

7.6 Change Management


The change control procedures to be followed will be consistent with Project Management Procedures and consist of the following processes:

A Change Control database will be established by the project manager to track all changes associated with the project effort.

All Change Requests will be assessed to determine possible alternatives and costs.

Change Requests will be reviewed and approved by the project owner.

The effects of approved Change Requests on the scope and schedule of the project will be reflected in updates to the project plan.

The Change Control database will be updated to reflect current status of Change Requests.

7.7 Communication Management


The following strategies have been established to promote effective communication within and about this project:

The Project Manager presents the project status to the Project Owner on a weekly basis; however, ad hoc meetings will be established at the project manager’s discretion as issues or change control items arise. The project manager provides a written status report to the Project Owner on a monthly basis and distributes the project team meeting minutes. The Project Owner will be notified via email on all urgent issues. Issue notification will include time constraints, and impacts, which will identify the urgency of the request for service.

The project team will have weekly update/status meetings to review completed tasks and determine current work priorities. Minutes will be produced from all meetings.

The project manager will provide the project sponsors with project team minutes and steering committee status reports.

A project collaborate web site will be established on the Internet to provide access to the project documentation by geographically dispersed project members.
