Any Federal construction contract valued at $150,000 or more requires a surety bond when bidding or as a condition of contract award. Most state and municipal governments as well as private entities have similar requirements. Many service contracts, and occasionally supply contracts, also require surety bonds. This one-hour seminar provides business owners and executives with the framework for obtaining and providing a bond. We will discuss the uses, benefits, and risks of various bond forms currently available and insight on what is necessary to qualify for a bond.

It is absolutely vital for a contractor to choose an unbiased contract that apportions risks and responsibilities in a fair and balanced manner. The A201™–2007, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction is the keystone document in a majority of projects that set forth a contractor’s roles and responsibilities on a construction project. The A201 is incorporated by reference into other contract documents with owners, architects and subcontractors and puts a contractor on solid legal footing with the owner of a project by balancing risks and responsibilities equitably. This seminar will instruct those who negotiate and manage the use of AIA contracts, including design-build, construction management, and subcontract agreements.
