SBA Quick Bond Program

Written by Jim Dillenburg on . Posted in Surety Bonds, Uncategorized

SBA Quick Bond Program

SBA Quick Bond Program Increase to $400,000

SBA Quick Bond Application

The SBA Quick Bond Program, previously capped at $250,000, is designed to help contractors that are declined from other programs due to low credit score or other reasons. The SBA Quick Bond program is now being extended up to $400,000 in late September, 2017. This means that contractors may be able to get SBA Bonds up to $400,000 without having to provide company financial information.

SBA Quick Bond Program – No Minimum Credit Score

A key component of the SBA Quick Bond Program is that there is no minimum credit score. Most quick bond programs that do not require financial documents use a minimum credit score to decline contractors. Utilizing the SBA Quick Bond Program, CCI Surety is able to help contractors obtain bonding, even if they have a low credit score. CCI Surety does still review credit for other issues that may effect the underwriting outcome. Our underwriters are skilled at working with SBA Bond Programs in general as well as other programs to help contractors that have difficulty obtaining bonds or quick bonds.

SBA Quick Bond Program – CCI Surety Small Contractor Program

CCI Surety has a program that is geared towards working with small contractors. The SBA Quick Bond Program is a key part of the program but there are many other tools that can help qualify small contractors. Funds control may be used with or even without the SBA Quick Bond Program in order to help contractors that may not have enough working capital or other financial difficulties.

SBA Quick Bond – Dedicated Personel

There is a dedicated staff for Small Contractors. Even contractors on small projects receive the full attention of the CCI Surety Small Contractor Program.

Our underwriters look at many factors and are able to consider other attributes like positive work history, other financial strengths. CCI Surety also uses tools like the SBA Bond Guarantee program and funds control to help mitigate the risk associated with a low credit score. If you have an account that is is having difficulty being placed, contact CCI Surety for help today.

P3 Projects

Written by Jim Dillenburg on . Posted in Uncategorized

P3 Projects or Public Private Partnerships

P3 Projects in the news

There is bipartisan agreement in Washington, D.C. that an infrastructure bill is needed. How that agreement is made and when it is passed remains in question. One thing that appears certain is that P3 Projects are going to be a part of the solution. P3 Projects are design to get private dollars involved in projects that have a public benefit. This could be infrastructure projects that have been delayed but that could benefit a particular business. In many cases, P3 Projects may allow a private entity to invest in the project to expedite its completion.
1. Public Protection on P3 Projects
On normal Federal Government (and most government construction at any level) projects, contracts over a certain size determined by the Federal Miller Act are protected by surety bonds. In short, a surety bond ensures that the public project will be completed and that all subcontractors and suppliers on the project will be paid appropriately.
Private projects may or may not have surety bond requirements included. As P3 Projects become more popular, it is important for government entities at all levels include specific language requiring bonds on P3 Projects at the total contract value.
2. Total Value of P3 Projects
It is important that the entire P3 Project is bonded. In some past cases, bonds were accepted at a lesser amount. This still leaves public money and interests at risk. Conflict over responsibility on completion of the project or payment to subs and subcontractors typically cannot be divided between public and private, therefore the entire project needs to be bonded.
2. Action Items on P3 Projects
Specific infrastructure language on a Federal level bill in not in place at this time. State level bills and language vary by state. In the build up to new P3 Projects, it is important that you reach out to legislators at all levels to make sure bond requirements on P3 Projects remain in place in the same way they are on all public projects. Be available to legislators to answer questions and create appropriate bill language.

Bond Turnaround

Bond Turnaround Time

Expect Quick Bond Turnaround Time from CCI Surety

Other markets, even non-standard markets have changing appetites. Some sureties change their focus to larger projects or to preferred agents when things get busy and this can affect turnaround time. If you notice a change in the the bond turnaround time you receive from an underwriter on Bid or Performance & Payment Bonds, you have options..
1. Know what types of bonds your surety focuses on
CCI Surety Always Specializes in Non-Standard Bonds:
– Target Projects $3,000,000 and under
– Dedicated underwriters focused on projects under $250,000
– Quick turnaround for all agents
Staying focused on these types of accounts helps ensure quick bond turnaround.
2. Market changes
The bond market is currently soft. Sometimes this helps agents get quick and easy turnaround on bonds for there clients. However, when things get busy and bigger accounts show up or high volume agencies call with new accounts, other surety markets may move your account to the back of the line. CCI Surety, services all agents quickly and efficiently by have non-standard bond underwriters that appreciate turnaround time constraints.

Larger Bond Line

Written by Jim Dillenburg on . Posted in Surety Bonds

Larger Bond Line

Prepare your contractor to participate in the coming infrastructure spending boom with larger bond lines while avoiding collateral.

Many parts of the country are experiencing construction optimism both in the quantity of projects available and the size of the projects. Larger projects take up capacity for large contractors and that leaves more  projects for smaller contractors. There are steps to take for insurance agents anticipating bond needs for their contractors.
1. Prepare for Larger Projects (even without CPA Financials)
Contractors that fit easily into credit-based quick programs need to be able to obtain a larger bond line and jump to projects that exceed the low limits of these programs. A review by CCI Surety now ensures that you have a plan in place for your contractor before they consider shopping for larger bond lines.
2. Get out of Collateral Arrangements
Bond programs that require collateral can drastically limit a contractor’s ability to obtain a larger bond line when more frequent and larger projects become available. CCI Surety exhausts all options rather than taking collateral and even if we do need a form of collateral we make it available to the contractor to use for hard costs on projects.

BMC-84 Bond

Written by Jim Dillenburg on . Posted in Uncategorized

BMC-84 Bonds – Claims and Other Factors

Freight Brokers were required to increase their bond size to $75,000. Initially these bonds were expensive and very difficult to place. Multiple factors have changed in the last few years and some Freight Brokers are looking to return to the industry after deciding to forego the more difficult bonding process. We have also seen some areas where claims on BMC-84 Bonds have increased. In these changing and competitive situations it is important to stay diligent during renewal season. There may be more competitive offers available to clients that have BMC-84 Bond needs. CCI Surety is always looking to make sure we have competitive quotes, even on renewals.
Please reach out with any questions or new accounts that you would like feedback on.

CCI Surety Account Profile – No Collateral

Written by Jim Dillenburg on . Posted in Uncategorized

Account Profile – $2,322,000 Final Bond

We often work with agents and contractors that see collateral as an easy way to obtain bonding. In this instance a new agent to CCI had a DBE contractor that was running a successful business but the financials were not improving. The contractor was at a crossroads, he was pinned beneath collateral burdens and was set to give up large projects all together.Once we started working on the account, it quickly became clear that we could write this account and even increase their capacity substantially. We were able to write this while also completely eliminating all collateral requirements for bonding.Within a week the contractor was set up for bonds with the SBA Bond Program up to $1,500,000 and projects up to $3,000,000 with funds control to help the contractor manage cash flow. Since that time the contractor has completed two projects and the financials have improved. The improved balance sheet will lead to reduced controls on the account as the account continues to strengthen.
