Would a comma be necessary in this sentence:

The project manager met with the insured this week, and we are in the process of scheduling the repairs.

@LBrinkmann,
It is not needed in the sentence as written. If you removed 'and'; then, yes it would be useful.

Sorry, but I disagree with Sturgis. Two independent clauses separated by an "and" require a comma to separate them.
