In order to be considered for a bond issuance, a health care organization must submit several pieces of information to the Authority. Below are some sample applications for a standard hospital transaction. Please note that the information required varies from project to project based on the financial characteristics of the borrower and the type of issuance being pursued. Therefore, if you are interested in pursuing a financing with the Authority, you must contact the Project Management Division which will provide you with the appropriate application for your project.

- Sale of a complex or poor credit
- Sale of a complex financing structure

- Letter Regarding the Appointment of Professionals All potential borrowers must provide a letter outlining their request for a Senior Managing Underwriter (in the event of a negotiated sale) or a financial advisor (in the event of a competitive sale), selected through a competitive process of at least three candidates. The letter will also include a recommendation for bond counsel, which would also be selected through a competitive process, though the Attorney General retains the right to name bond counsel. Underwriters, financial advisors, bond counsel and trustees must be qualified by the Authority. The letter must explain the criteria used in making its decision(s), including how cost played a role.
