Contracts are generally done through a solicitation procedure where companies and individuals can bid on services, construction projects or goods. The process could include completion of a bid bond form, application to a vendor system, and other requirements. The links below provide helpful information to contract processes.
Maine Contract Bonds are often required by federal agencies, local municipalities, counties, universities or private entities. The process generally begins with a bid letting process, and if a contractor is awarded the contract he bid on, then a contract bond or payment and/or performance bond (such as for an MaineDOT contract) may be required.
