Surety must be listed currently on the U.S. Department of Treasury Financial Management Service List (Treasury List) as approved for an amount equal to or greater than the contract amount, or must be an insurance company domiciled in Louisiana or owned by Louisiana residents.

However, a Louisiana domiciled insurance company with at least an A- rating in the latest printing of the A.M.
