Lobbying Activities

Government Procurement

Arranging meeting between an individual and a public office holder for purpose of lobbying

To ensure that public office holders and government officials are informed of surety products and processes. SAC's mission is to act as an information resource, and it does not sell any products or services. The subject matter is contract risk management; the specifics pertain to how surety serves this purpose - with respect to the process of issuing surety(underwriting and prequalification); the security provided (bonds); and (in the event it is ever needed) the claims process. The objective is to ensure that public owners, like the BC Government, understand the surety process and product so that they can derive the optimum benefits from it. A full description of SAC's mission is contained on its website:
