However, no excess insurance shall be purchased on any items listed in paragraphs (1)(c), (e), (g), (h), and (i), regardless of value or risk.
(3) Any items, property, or insurable subjects titled in the name of the state or its departments, divisions, bureaus, commissions, or agencies which are not included or insured by the State Risk Management Trust Fund under chapter 284 or specifically designated not to be insured by this section shall be eligible subjects for insurance coverage through commercial insurance carriers as otherwise provided by law.
(4) No primary insurance contracts shall be purchased on any property or insurable subjects when the same is loaned to, leased by, or intended to be leased by, the state or its departments, divisions, bureaus, commissions, or agencies unless such coverage is required by the terms of the lease agreement and unless the insurance coverages required by the provisions of the lease are approved in writing by the Department of Management Services. 1, 2, 3, 4, ch. 70-435; s. 1, ch. 73-64; s. 1, ch. 84-27; s. 247, ch. 92-279; s. 55, ch. 92-326; s. 63, ch. 96-418; s. 18, ch. 2000-122.
