EllisDon Corporation will be using Subguard® on the Project. Subguard® is Zurich North America Insurance Companies’ Subcontractor Default Insurance Program. This is an insurance product that replaces Subcontractor bonding. As Subguard® is being used on the Project, Subcontractors will not be required to provide a performance and payment bond. Subcontractors will instead be required to provide EllisDon with information about their company’s experience and financial capability to complete the Subcontract Work. The confidentiality of financial information submitted with respect to a Subguard® application will be respected. Having the required current Subguard® rating from EllisDon as noted herein will be a condition for further assessment and consideration of the Pre-Qualification Submission received from the Trade Contractor as part of this Pre-Qualification process. It is the Trade Contractor’s responsibility to have completed the online Subguard application (refer to Appendix “A” in the Pre-Qualification Documents) and have the required current Subguard® rating from EllisDon within one (1) week after the Pre-Qualification Closing deadline. EllisDon will remain available to address any questions or concerns.
