Workshop content

What is surety? When would it be helpful? How can I use it for the best results? What are the recent trends?

All of these questions and more will be answered by the Surety Association of Canada in a new series of workshops exploring surety tools, both paper and electronic. The workshops will include:

  • a review of surety instruments used in the procurement and contract management process;
  • an outline of the differences between surety instruments and alternatives forms of security, i.e. contract default insurance and letters of credit;
  • a review of a few case studies where surety bonds were called, claims made and the subsequent outcome, and a discussion regarding what might have resulted if alternative forms of security were in place; and
  • an update on e-bonding.
  • an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have on Surety and the best strategic way to use this tool in your procurement process.

 Who can attend

This workshop is opened to anyone directly or indirectly involved in any contracts where a Surety Bond is used. Procurement professionals can attend but also their internal partners usually involved in the execution of the contract. They will definitely be interested by this topic and will walk out of this session with many tools to help them manage contracts.

How to register

The workshop fee is $125.00 per person for members of the CPPC and $200 for non-members.
