Free Bonding Education Program Workshop

Many public agencies have policies that encourage the use of small, socio-economically disadvantaged businesses and those owned by women and minorities. On public works construction projects, one of the long-standing impediments for these businesses to participate on public projects is the inability to obtain a payment and performance bond. 

Target audience:  
  • Small and Emerging Contractors:  This workshop will provide tools for small and emerging contractors to get to the point where they can obtain the required bonding.
  • Transportation Contractors:  The program is tailored to contractors competing for transportation related contracts, but is open to all contractors seeking to expand their business and run their operation more effectively.  
  • Public Agencies:  The workshop will also be valuable for public agencies seeking to understand better some of the challenges faced by small contractors in obtaining bonding.  
When: 5 classes on the following dates from 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm (attendance at all five classes is required).  Includes a free dinner.
