    SBA PPP - Agent Agreement

    AVP at a bank ($247MUSA)
    Hello Everyone, 

    Is there anyone out there that has drafted an agent agreement for the PPP loans? Clearly, there is very little formal guidance other than the max fees and who can act as an agent. We are looking to have something requiring the agent to attest to the accuracy of information provided in the forgiveness application, and lists the expected duties of the agent. If you have one would you mind sharing (or DM'ing me)? Thank you!

      In our recent industry survey, over 70% of respondents mentioned COVID-19-related loan workouts were a concern. 

      Lenders in many markets will face a wave of negotiations and restructures as they seek to stabilize those borrowers who can recover from the events of early 2020, and protect the lenders’ interests in cases where no recovery is likely.  Join this conversation with product experts and implementation consultants at Abrigo to see how the tools you already have in place can make this process more efficient.  In this sixty minute webinar, we will discuss how the Abrigo software offerings address the following important considerations:
      • Establishing and applying consistent criteria for decision-making
      • Triage and prioritization for stabilizing troubled customers
      • Present-value modeling for terms of restructured agreements
      • Efficient communication for (likely understaffed) special assets teams
      • Integrated processes for secure, distributed decision-making

        You've secured funds for small business borrowers through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), but the work is far from over once loans are issued. It’s time to consider the loan forgiveness process – one of the most important aspects of the program to both borrowers and lenders. It’s also one of the biggest areas of uncertainty.
        In this session hear what lenders have learned so far about the forgiveness process, based on the CARES Act, interim final rules published by the SBA, and other guidance published on the SBA and Treasury websites.

        Join to learn:
        • What the guidance says so far about the forgiveness of Paycheck Protection Program loans
        • How to streamline the SBA forgiveness process with the Sageworks SBA Lending solution
