Possible uses and use restrictions...

Contracts of $1.250 million or less, where a surety bond is required but not available privately without an SBA guarantee. Guarantee is limited to bid, payment, and performance bonds (and ancillary bonds incidental to the performance of a specific contract). Guarantee is provided directly to the surety for a particular contract. Under the Prior Approval Program, sureties must apply for each guarantee on a case-by-case basis. Sureties participating in the Preferred Surety Bond (PSB) Program are empowered to issue, monitor and service bonds, subject to SBA's guarantee, without prior SBA approval. Guarantee covers up to 90 percent of surety's losses on that contract under the Prior Approval Program and up to 70 percent of surety's losses under the PSB program.
