The National Association of Bond Lawyers (NABL) and the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) have jointly developed the following checklist to assist bond counsel in discussing with issuers and conduit borrowers, as applicable, post issuance compliance matters. The checklist is divided into three parts: tax, securities and State law matters. The checklist can serve as a framework for discussion at an appropriate time during the transaction or as a written document prepared by bond counsel and furnished to the issuer or conduit borrower after completion of the financing. Bond counsel may need to explain various items on the checklist to provide the issuer with a more complete understanding of the noted concept. The checklist can be amended or supplemented as needed to address the particular financing issue. Issuers and conduit borrowers are encouraged to contact bond counsel at any time they may have questions or concerns pertaining to tax, securities or State law issues.
