Anyone with a construction company needs to have a good relationship with a surety bonds provider. If you are looking to increase your business and win more bids, you need to invest in required bonds. The simple fact of the matter is, without the required public works payment bonds, you will not be as employable as the next company who does have the bonds. Bonds are a great way of building trust between you and the local government municipalities, and it provides the guarantees which benefit both sides.

What is public work?
Public work projects are construction projects which the government, i.e., federal, state, and local municipalities fund. They can be the construction of a new building or a refurbishment of any type of public building or facility. Public work examples are hospitals, roads, highways, bridges, and dams.
What is a public work bond?
A public work bond is a form of surety bond. It can also be called a contract bond, a performance bond, or even a payment bond. The bond is like a form of insurance. It is a legally binding agreement that acts as a guarantee to ensure that you will complete the terms of the construction contract. This includes all stipulations. The bond, in effect, serves as a financial backup to the client in the event that the expected standard of work is not met. The agreement is based upon performance. This means that, at the beginning, you agree upon things such as timescales and the quality of materials required, for example. If, upon completion, these agreements are not met, then there is a breach of contract. Therefore the bond gets paid to the customer or the government in this case. These bonds provide security, back up, and peace of mind for all involved. A public work bond or a Payment and Performance Bond for Construction is a legal requirement that any construction company needs to have in order to be considered to carry out public work.
Subcontractor Surety Bonds
If your construction firm requires the services of any subcontractors to complete the work, you may need to take out an additional subcontractor performance bond, or a subcontractor payment bond. The sub-contract arrangement is tied into the original bond. The guarantor then is able to ensure that the subcontract work is completed along with the main body of work. So, all work will be protected and honored even if the subcontractor suffers and problems and difficulties in finishing their section of the project.
What are the benefits of obtaining a public work bond?
There are many benefits in purchasing a public work bond:
- The first and most obvious is that it is a legal requirement, so without one, you will be considered to take in any public construction work.
- It makes sure that the work is completed, despite any setbacks, delays, and obstacles that may afflict the contractor or subcontractor.
- It is a guarantee to employees, i.e., laborers, suppliers, casuals, etc., that they will be paid even if the construction company falls on hard times.
- The project owner will not have any financial loss to deal with.
- It massively reduces the chance that a project will not be completed. It is, in essence, a form of trust and enhances the reputation of a company for putting their money where their mouth is, so to speak.
- Even if the lowest bidder is chosen, quality and service are not compromised as this is a way to mitigate that risk.
