Partner Engineering and Science has a team of professionals dedicated to work on environmental assessments for the SBA 7(a) Loan Program & the SBA 504 Loan Program. We have developed key relationships within the U.S. SBA that enable us to stay current on all requirements laid out by the SBA for environmental investigations. We work with key individuals and committees in regards to SOP changes, appeals, and policy notices.

Whether you need a Records Search with Risk Assessment (RSRA), a Transaction Screen, a Phase I or a Phase II, the SBA team at Partner Engineering and Science are your nationwide experts for any environmental investigation on the SBA 7(a) Loan Program or the SBA 504 Loan Program. We not only meet the liability insurance requirements of the SBA—we exceed them. We include the SBA Reliance Letter on every Transaction Screen Report, Phase I Report, and Phase II Report. We work to ensure your environmental report meets every requirement set forth by the SBA, and passes their intense scrutiny with ease. Our goal is to take this one piece of the puzzle and provide our clients (our Partners) with comfort and confidence so they don't have to worry whether or not the environmental will be handled flawlessly each and every time.
