Data standards provide the confidence to implement and innovate


Surety provides the confidence to contract


Digital communications and

Electronic transactions provide efficiency

 

Together we can build with efficiency and confidence

Participate in the Hack-a-thon to collaboratively build shareware that will help our industry better manage contractor’s data from multiple manually completed paper “Contractor Forms and Applications” to a single online application with all the necessary data fields to export all the data sets to machine readable data in free and open data standards like XBRL and FIBO.


Then download the free Chico Salesforce App from the Salesforce App Exchange and join the world of data interoperability confident in data quality and reliability.


With a cost effective way to implement data interoperability and your own copy of the Chico Salesforce App that you can modify to make proprietary, the innovation opportunities are yours to create.

Innovation that will improve access to surety credit for small business, help project owners and general contractors prequalify subcontractors, and help public agencies reduce the barrier to opportunity that surety requirements can cause.

By leaving behind the old inefficient paper based processes and transitioning to efficient data communications and electronic transactions the ability to manage increased volumes of construction activity becomes not only manageable, but improves underwriting and risk management.


Our neighbors in the Gulf States and the Caribbean Islands need this efficiency today, now, urgently.

 Let’s get to work.

Promoting data interoperability, transitioning to digital transactions and incorporating various data analytics capabilities through strategic collaboration relationships.

Specialty Surety Unit for:

The national transition to digital commerce for major infrastructure construction of energy and transportation projects will be a major disruptive event that has taken years of buildup, collaboration and the creation of a foundational structures. 

Those years will seem as an endless series of technobabble theories and drawn out hypothesis offered by industry leaders that seek to contribute, however most are offered by solution providers with a proprietary product to sell. 


The extreme cost of miscalculation, being trapped in a system, or tied to a process with no guaranteed future has kept most stakeholders on the sidelines pending market clarity, confidence in data exchange reliability and security, and solutions that present a compelling business case. 

The Online Specialty Surety Unit for Surety Resource Connection is that compelling case, based not on offering a proprietary technology solutions that ties and constrains stakeholders, but the utilization and implementation of machine readable open standards enabled by data interoperability to unlock the potential of stakeholders to innovate and compete.

The software applications developed by Surety Resource Connection demonstrate how data can be exchanged reliably and securely using machine readable federally recognized data standards like XBRL and FIBO. 

By developing the shareware software as an educational opportunity with resulting programming code offered for free on GitHub, or shortly on the Salesforce App Exchange, we can offer the compelling business case of data interoperability being cost effective to implement with high confidence in its quality, reliability and security.

Our stakeholders engage with Surety Resource Connection applications because they replace inefficient manual policies and procedures for exchanging data with methods that allow total freedom for stakeholders to independently innovate, and to choose their business partners free from any constraints.

While the transition to digital has taken years, the time is now and the need is urgent.

Our neighbors that have suffered through Harvey, Irma and Maria need to rebuild as fast and efficiently as possible the damage to their transportation and energy infrastructure, and to manage the surge of high volume of construction activity with all the modern resources available to undertake the effort with prudent risk management that both protects the public against default and promotes local companies and small business to be part of the rebuilding.

Surety Resource Connection and its collaborators are accelerating their efforts to make our shareware available to all those that want to implement modern construction administration to be able to implement that modernization without having to commit to any vendor, service or system, and without endorsement or exclusivity to anything other than free and open standards.

Join with our collaboration to speed up the delivery of this vital capability to our neighbors in need and unleash the innovation that will follow.

Surety Resource Connection is designed for universities to promote an educational opportunity for students interested in the business of construction. The project has some simple underlying principles:

Data that is used in business decisions, such as project information, is becoming more prevalent on the internet.

The ability to provide, process and harness that data using commonly adopted open standards would result in more cost efficient systems evolving as open competition prevents monopolistic and proprietary systems from emerging.

While there is broad consensus that a common system needs to be developed, there is not a commonly adopted open standard, or process, currently in place. The private sector, by its nature, is not conducive to developing applications or processes that provide wide unrestricted use. The public sector is.

Students that are given the hands on opportunity to work with the processing and movement of data will be learning essential skills for any number of future applications and/or employers.

Employers, public and private, will need graduates with an understanding of how data is moved along the internet.

With the underlying objective to coordinate a wide range of participants the students will have contact and interaction with a number of public and private enterprises, each a potential internship or employment opportunity.
