Gearing Up for Public Projects

Industry experts are predicting that some contractors could be caught unprepared when the competition for new public projects across the country really kicks in. This may be especially true for those hoping to shift from the commercial sector. As Construction Dive reports:     

Most government work of consequence requires that contractors be able to provide performance and payment bonds, also known as surety bonds, in the amount of the contract. In order to be bondable, the contractor must apply to a surety company, usually through a broker, and go through a fairly rigorous application process….

Some of the information that a contractor must provide before being approved for a surety bond are background on the company and the types of projects it performs and financial documents and statements reflecting its stability and success….Companies that have not been bonded before might be surprised at the level of financial and operational detail the applications require.
