What Are Bid Bonds
A bid bond is a type of surety bond, which guarantees that the bidder will accept the project and complete it according to its terms. It provides assurance to the project owner that the bidder has the expertise and financial ability to finish the job once they are selected after the bidding process. More owners/developers are now requiring a bid bond. Risk is the driving factor in this. Given the uncertainty of the marketplace, which includes long-time contractors closing their doors, to municipalities filing bankruptcy (or just slow paying), has led to the owners being afraid that their contractors will be unable to complete the work. So, they require a some protection.
Swiftbonds works with bid bond underwriters in Texas, as well as the bigger, national surety underwriting companies. It should be noted that all city/state public works projects and private projects need to have contract surety bonds. The first step for getting such a bond is the bid bond, which is usually, but not always 5 to 10 percent of the project. Swiftbonds is capable of working within time constraints to have the bonds issued as fast as possible in order for contractors to be able to win and accept projects.
How A Bid Bond Works In Texas
If the bid on a contract is won, the bid bond becomes binding. A performance bond is then provided to guarantee that a project will be completed according to the specifications and plans. In the event that the project is not completed or if it has been determined as being unacceptable, it is this contract bond that will allow the surety company to hire a contractor to complete the project properly or settle for damages. These bonds can protect both the project and the contractor. When there is a bond on the contract, the client can file claim on the bond in case the contractor fails to finish the project. If the contractor is unable to complete the project because of financial losses or bankruptcy, the company that issued the surety bond pays the client for any losses.
Meanwhile, Swiftbonds can also help with other bonds, such as the payment bond and the SBA bond. Payment bonds are used to guarantee that unpaid bills will be paid up to the bond amount. This is needed for public projects amounting to more than $25,000. The SBA bond can help contractors who have a difficult time getting a bid bond.
