More context?


Explanation:
It's not clear whether the "sociedad de caucion" is the entity that is checking the viability of the company, or whether some other entity is using the "sociedad de caucion" as its own reference in checking the viability of the company.

In the first case, the "sociedad de caucion" could very well be a surety company, bonding company, or capital indemnification association, as suggested above. If so, it might conduct its own investigation into the viability of the candidate company, or else use the services of what is known in the U.S. as a "credit-reporting company," which is a business that monitors the reliability of other companies based on how promptly they pay their bills.

In the second case, any private or public entity might consult the surety company in order to obtain information about the company for which the surety company is providing services.

A little more context would make these relationships clearer, and would make it easier to select the proper English term.
