A North Dakota Contractor shakes hands with a client

Contracts are generally done through a solicitation procedure where companies and individuals can bid on construction projects, services or goods. The process could include completion of a bid bond form, application to a vendor system, and other requirements. Below are links that provide more details to contract processes.

Contract Bonds are often required by a federal government agency, local municipalities, counties, universities or private entities. The process generally begins with a bidding process and if a contractor is awarded the contract, a contract bond or payment and/or performance bond (such as for an NDDot contract) may be required.

The following are types of bonds associated with a contract:

Supply Bond: A Guarantee that the company will supply the goods with a specific timeline as outlined in the contract.

Bid Bond: Ensures that the surety pre-qualifies 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 in the contract, including finishing the project on time, staying within budget and other terms within the contract.

Proposal Guarantee Bond: Another term for Bid Bond and includes the same requirements

Payment Bond: A guarantee that subcontractors, suppliers and laborers are paid.

Maintenance Bond: A guarantees of material workmanship for a certain period of time after a project is completed.
