Can I use the BAP on any project I want?

No; the BAP can be used only on CDOT Construction & Maintenance projects with an estimated budget up to $3M.

What kind of projects are good candidates for the BAP?

CDOT recommends using the BAP on projects like restriping, safety improvements, sound wall replacements, drainage improvements, ADA Curb Ramps, and other relatively straightforward scopes of work.

What's the difference between CDOT's ESB BAP and the SBA's Bond Guarantee Program?

CDOT's BAP is designed to help ESB's become Primes on CDOT jobs; the SBA's program provides bonding assistance to subcontractors.
