The bid bond: watertight and solid

Are you putting a contract out to tender and looking for a reliable contractor? Or are you a contractor wanting to maximise your chances of taking part in a project? If so, the bid bond is an essential tool during the negotiation process. A bid bond clause gives you a guarantee that the counterparty will meet their promises. It’s an ideal way of building up a long-term relationship of trust.

What is a bid bond?

A bid bond is issued during a tender process. The purpose of the bid bond is to ensure that the winning contractor abides by the contractual terms governing the delivery. At the same time, it means that the contracting party can no longer cancel the contract once the bid has been approved. If one of the two parties withdrawals before the end of the tender period, they have to pay the agreed guaranteed amounts to the other party.
