Public Bonding Kit


Under the aegis of the NASBP Commercial Bonding Committee, this tool kit was created to help surety professionals explain the function and necessity of bonding to local, or state employees, elected officials, and any other person responsible for spending taxpayer dollars on behalf of the public. It is our goal to assist clients and potential obligees in making wise decisions about bonding projects where taxpayer money is involved.
