Steps  of an Environmental Investigation (Flowchart)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tips to help in the processing of environmental submissions to SLPC 

  • Ensure that the CD is properly labeled.
  • Ensure the SBA Reliance Letter is not altered or modified.
  • Send in new documents for resubmissions – not all documents.
  • Attach the screen-out with the resubmission.
  • Address the past and current use of the property and the adjoining properties in an Environmental Questionnaire (EQ).
  • Ensure the EQ is signed by the owner or operator of the property
  • Ensure the CDC Checklist has comments and is signed by the CDC.
  • Provide the loan number or the control number on the CDC Checklist.
  • If a loan is approved after pre-application, include the control number so the documents can be associated with the pre-application file.
  • If a records search and risk assessment (RSRA) states anything other than a "low risk", a Phase 1 Assessment is the minimum requirement for submission.
  • Ensure all recommendations by the environmental professional are completed prior to submission to SLPC.
  • Ensure the addresses on the CDC Checklist and the environmental documents match the address on the loan authorization.
  • Ensure the correct NAICS code is included on the CDC Checklist.
  • Ensure the CDC Checklist is included for all environmental document submittals.
  • Ensure the SBA Reliance Letter has the same date as the Transaction Screen Analysis (TSA), Phase 1 Assessment or Phase 2 Assessment.
  • Ensure the SBA Reliance Letter and Certificate of Professional Liability Insurance accompanies the TSA, Phase 1 Assessment or Phase 2 Assessment.
  • The  Phase 1 Assessment for a gas station must include a determination whether or not the gas station is in compliance with all state requirements, if any, pertaining to tank and equipment testing. 

 

v Minimum requirements for environmental submissions 

  •  If the property is in an environmental sensitive industry as defined in Appendix 4 of SBA SOP 50 10 5, then a Phase 1 Assessment is required.
  • If the property is not in an environmental sensitive industry as defined in Appendix 4 of SBA SOP 50 10 5 and the loan is less than or equal to $150k, then an Environmental Questionnaire is the minimum requirement for submission.
  • If the property is not in an environmental sensitive industry as defined in Appendix 4 of SBA SOP 50 10 5 and the loan is greater than $150k, then an Environmental Questionnaire and a Records Search and Risk Assessment are the minimum requirements for submission.
  • If the owner/operator of the site is unable or unwilling to sign an environmental questionnaire, then a Transaction Screen Analysis is the minimum requirement for submission.
