How Arkansas Performance Bonds Work
Surety Performance Bonds are referred to as a three-party agreement between the principal, the obliged and the surety company. The principal is the employer or company that will carry out the work detailed in the contract and the obliged, or obligee, is referred to as the project owner. Construction companies in Arkansas will almost always be required by law to get performance bonds when they are chosen for a public project. The government entity (federal, state or municipality) requires a construction company to get a host of bonds before they start work on a particular project. The bond will guarantee that the subcontractors and other workers would be paid even if the contractor will default. The contractor covers the losses, but once they reach their limit, the duty will fall to the surety company.
Swiftbonds works with surety bond underwriters in Arkansas, 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.
If the bid on a contract is won, a performance bond is 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 the performance bond that will allow the surety bond company to hire a contractor to complete the project properly or settle for damages. Performance bonds can protect both the project and the contractor. When there is a performance bond, the client can file claim on the bond in case the contractor failed 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.
Other Bond Offerings
Swiftbonds can also help with other bonds in Arkansas, 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 performance bond or a bid bond.
