How the ESB BAP Works

There are four key steps for firms that are interested in using the ESB BAP:

  1. Review eligibility criteria and submit BAP Application
  2. Complete Lockton SCORE assessment and Program Orientation
  3. Identify a project opportunity (up to $3M); request percent guarantee from CDOT and sign Irrevocable Letter of Credit (ILOC) 
  4. Prepare and submit your bid

If you are identified as the Lowest Apparent Bidder, you will provide a Bonding Letter from the Surety and the completed ILOC to meet the bonding requirements in the contract.
