Bid Bond

A Bid bond makes sure that contractors submit serious bid proposals. These bonds reassure project developers that bidders have the financial credentials necessary to accept the job. If a bid is selected and the contractor declines the job or retracts the bid, the project developer can make a claim on the bond to recoup the difference between that bid and the next-highest bid.

Bonds for all your business needs

A Bid Bond guarantees that the obligee will be paid the difference between the principal’s tender price and the next closest tender price. This action is only triggered should the principal be awarded the contract but fails to enter into the contract, as agreed, with the obligee. The bid bond penalty is generally ten percent of the bidder’s tender price. Contractors prefer the use of Bid Bonds because they are a less expensive option and they do not tie up cash or bank credit lines during the bidding process. Owners and general contractors also use Bid Bonds because they establish and confirm that the bidding contractor or supplier is qualified to undertake the project.
