Vital Resources for Black Entrepreneurs


Bonding Education Program

The Bonding Education Program (BEP) is a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Surety and Fidelity Association of America (SFAA), designed to help small businesses obtain a surety bond. We have partnered with Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority to bring small and emerging businesses a comprehensive set of education and professional services that will assist businesses in becoming bond-ready or increase existing bonding capacity so that contractors may compete and bid on WMATA RFP FQ16146/NAC to develop the Potomac Yards Metro Station.
Course begins February 23, 2017 from 11am-1:30pm and will run for 8 consecutive weeks.
