SBA Quick Bond Program

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.

Successful applicants seeking for a Provider Agreement with Express Scripts must provide a $500,000 Express Script Bond

There are many requirements in the bonding process. Express Scripts is requiring a Bond in the amount of $500,000. In addition, the Express Scripts Bond must be obtained through a bonding entity with an A.M. Best rating of A-VII or better. The Express Scripts Bond must be submitted before the Provider Agreement is offered. The Express Scripts Bond must also be maintained for a minimum period of 2 years.

CCI Surety has markets that meet the requirements for Express Scripts Bonds.

Express Scripts Bond Checklist

  3. Business Financials
  4. Key Personnel Resumes

Typically, CCI Surety handles bonds for individuals and entities that are declined by standard markets because of low credit score, financial weakness, or other difficulties.

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.

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.

Account Profiles – Good Experience, Bad Credit

Written by Jim Dillenburg on . Posted in Uncategorized

Account Profile – $245,000 Final Bond

An agent approached CCI Surety with a long time Fire Alarm Installation Contractor client that didn’t typically work on bonded projects. Our biggest challenge with this account was the low personal credit scores of both the husband and wife who owned the company.We can often handle accounts that have one or two areas of weakness and we do our best to also identify the positive aspects of accounts. In this case, with a long history of success on projects of similar size and scope, we focused on references. To their credit, all inquiries on their past work came back overwhelmingly positive.

We had verified the performance aspect of the contractor’s capacity but due to the credit situation needed to address the payment security. In this case we used Funds Control to help mitigate payment risks. In the fall of 2015 the project was completed with no claims.

Happy Holidays

We do not see as many final contract bonds in December and January, but we are still working hard to get contractors qualified for bonds next year.
