eBonds: Understanding the eBond process for government bids
Changes happen every day all around us. Some changes can be controlled, and others occur whether we're ready for it or not. Recently, the world had to suddenly adjust to the changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the challenges facing Public Works is how to accept bonds while still maintaining social distancing protocols and ensuring the bonds are not fraudulent. The surety industry is pushing for agencies to enact electronic bonding because of the transparency in the process, elimination of the possibility of fraud, and maintaining social distancing protocols.
In this session, we will discuss:
- What is an eBond
- How the process works
- How it protects your agency
- Who's accepting eBonds
Don't forget to sign up for the companion session Vendor Management / Bid Management - for Public Works and Construction to find out how the PB System™ provides a complete and robust system to manage all your construction bids including submissions of eBonds! This session will be held on Sept 18th at 10 am PST.
