2013 workshops on Surety

Presented by the Surety Association of Canada in cooperation with the Canadian Public Procurement Council

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 with 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 three separate 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.
