All Types of Contract Bonds

Contracts are generally done through a solicitation bid letting procedure where companies and individuals can bid on services or goods. The process could include completion of a bid bond form, application to a vendor system, and other requirements.

Contract Bonds are often required by the federal government, local municipalities, counties, universities or private entities. The process generally begins with a bidding process and if awarded the contract, a contract bond or payment and/or performance bond (such as for a Federal Design-Build Homeland Security Contract) may be required.

There are several categories that fall under the umbrella of contract bonds which include:

Supply Bond - Guarantees that the company will supply the goods and materials with a specific timeline as outlined in the contract.
Bid Bond - The surety prequalifies the contractor bidding on the project. The bond confirms that if the contractor is the low bidder, the surety will issue the performance and payment bonds.
Performance Bond - Guarantees the contractor will perform the duties written in the contract, including finishing the project on time, staying within budget and other terms within the contract.
Proposal Guarantee Bond - Is another definition/term for Bid Bond and includes the same aspects.
Payment Bond - Guarantees that laborers, subcontractors, and suppliers are paid.
Payment and Performance Bond - Guarantees that a contractor will pay all suppliers and subcontracts for labor and materials and faithfully perform all duties set forth in a contract.
Maintenance Bond - Guarantees materials and workmanship for a certain period of time after a project is completed.
