What is a Bid Bond?

A Bid Bond is given to a Government Agency or General Contractor, at the time of a bid which guarantees that if the Contractor (Principal) is awarded the contract the Principal will enter into the contract and post the required Performance and Payment Bonds. Bid bonds are typically required only as a percentage of the Principals bid, usually 10%.

What is a Performance Bond?

The Performance Bond follows the Bid Bond if the Contractor (Principal) is awarded a contract. The Performance Bond guarantees that the Contractor will complete the contract in accordance with the terms, conditions and specifications. The Performance Bond is required as a condition of being awarded the contract.

What is a Payment Bond?

A Payment Bond is usually issued along with the Performance Bond. The Payment Bond guarantees that material suppliers and sub-contractors will be paid. Though Payment Bonds are typically separate documents they are issued for no extra charge, when required.
