NASBP Bond Forms
Through discussions with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), NASBP secured the permission of AIA to create NASBP-equivalents of the current editions of their bid bond document, AIA Document A310-2010, their performance bond and payment bond document, AIA Document A312-2010, and their warranty bond document, AIA Document A313-2020.
Producer's Tool Kit
The NASBP Producers Tool Kit contains templates for frequently used forms. Each form allows the agency to brand it using their agency logo and contact information.
NASBP is an endorsing organization of the ConsensusDocs Coalition, an unprecedented effort by 42 industry organizations to identify industry best practices and to incorporate such practices in a new generation of consensus industry standard form documents. By fairly allocating risk and incorporating best practices, ConsensusDocs help reduce costly claims and contingencies, saving project time and money.
