Contract Bonds

Contract bonds are used heavily in the construction industry by general contractors as a part of construction law, and are a guaranty from a Surety to a project’s owner that a general contractor will adhere to the provisions of a contract. Contract bonds are not the same thing as contractor’s license bonds, which may be required as part of a license.

Bid bonds, performance bonds, payment bonds, and maintenance bonds are common types of contract bonds and there are also miscellaneous contract bonds that do not fall within the categories above. Bonds are typically required for federal government projects by the Miller Act and state projects under “little Miller Acts”. In federal government, the contract language is determined by the government. In private contracts the parties may freely contract the language and requirements.
