About A Surety Bond Obligee
The Obligee to any surety bond is the party that receives the benefit of the bond. In a contractual situation, this is the owner of a project. Thus, if the general contractor is unable to perform, then the Obligee can look to the surety to make it whole.
The Obligee is the party that requires the Obligor (the general contractor) to get the bond. That way, if the Obligor is unable to perform under the terms of the agreement, then the Obligee can be assured that they can get another party to finish the project or get paid damages. This reduces their risk considerably.
In any governmental contract, the federal government or municipality is the Obligee.
