Like a performance bond, a bid bond is another type of indemnity bond.
This type of bond is used when a potential client puts out a request for
proposals; if the contractor wants to complete a job,
a bid bond will be submitted. When several contractors submit bids for the project, the owner looks
at these bids as promises to perform the work, and a bid bond will ensure
that the work is done in case the bid is withdrawn. A bid bond is used
to protect the solicitor of proposals in case the chosen contractor decides
not to perform the work.
Whereas performance and bid bonds are designed to protect owners, it is
subcontractors and those who supply materials who use payment bonds. These
are typically used when the project costs a certain amount of money, and
ensure that the contractor will pay the subcontractor the appropriate
amount. A payment bond is another kind of indemnity bond.
