What is a Bid Bond?

A Bid Bond is a type of contract bond that guarantees that the bidder will bid on the project in good faith and can procure the requisite payment and performance bonds within the amount of time specified in the bid specifications once the contract is awarded.

Bid bond amounts are usually a percentage of the total bid amount (5, 10 or 20%); however, they are underwritten on the entire bid amount as they guarantee the Principal can obtain payment and performance bonds in the amount of the full contract price.

What are the underwriting guidelines?

Despite the fact that Bid Bond amounts are usually only a percentage of the bid amount, they are underwritten on the full bid amount. Bid bonds are underwritten using the following criteria:

  • Bid Amount
  • Personal and Corporate Credit History
  • Personal and Corporate Net Worth
  • Personal and Corporate Assets
  • Total Work on Hand
  • Previous Experience
  • Scope of Work

How much does the bond cost?

In most cases, if there is a payment and performance bond requirement in the bid specifications, the bid bond is free! We can still help if there is no final bond requirement. Contact us today for rates.
