On Time, on Budget, Maximum Profits every time. Payment and Performance Bonds.

A payment bond is required on many construction projects, both private and federal. In the construction industry, the payment bond is usually issued along with a performance bond. The payment bond forms a three-way contract between the Owner, the contractor and the surety, to make sure that all sub-contractors, laborers, and material suppliers will be paid leaving the project lien free. A ‘payment only’ bond is rarely requested.

Payment Bond Terms

The Surety is the company licensed by the Insurance Department and the regulatory agencies to write bonds within the state of the country on which the work will be executed.

The Contractor also called the principal, promises in the payment bond that the contract will be executed according to the specified terms, while the Surety promises that if the contractor fails on the terms, it will pay damages to all demanding parties.

The Obligee is the entity that is requiring the contractor to get a bond.

Successfully Bid on Commercial Construction Projects with Surety Bonds.

Many new contractors who are interested in the construction industry ask how to bid construction jobs. There is no set way to bid on construction projects, but coming up with the most accurate cost estimate and developing the lowest bid is a tried-and-true method.

Construction bidding is the process in which a general contractor is selected to work on a construction project.

In some cases, the only thing that matters in the construction bidding process is presenting the lowest price to the owner; in other cases, the contractor’s qualifications are as important—if not more important—than having the lowest dollar amount.

One of the most lucrative long-term opportunities for construction companies is winning construction bid projects. As a construction company small or large, you most likely already know obtaining business through contract bidding can be a great source of income. It is also a way of securing long-term work and steady cash-flow for years.

Virtually all of the public construction work in America is accomplished by private sector firms. This work generally is awarded to the lowest responsive bidder through the open competitive sealed bid system. Surety bonds play a critical role in making the system work.

There are also several internet search sites for current and upcoming construction bids in most states, at Bernard Fleischer and Sons/BFBond.com we are a licensed bond provider in all 50 states.

BFbond.com has an easy application that can be filled out online, which will give the necessary information for the underwriter to know who you are and where you are coming from. It is impossible to give too much information regarding a contractor. Everything the contractor does can be submitted to the company. His ability as an estimator can be determined by the listing of bids submitted in the application. Newspaper accounts of work, etc. and photos are always helpful.

 

 

THAT’S IT! Easy as 1, 2, 3, our streamlined process will get you on the fast track to obtaining a bid & performance bond.

Car Wash – Wage Payment Bond Requirements as of 2017, Visit BFBond.com

The New York City Car Wash Wage Payment Bond

is a new requirement for the New York City DCA due to the Car Wash Accountability Act, The law enacting this bond was passed in 2015 but enforcement will begin this renewal term. The license renews 10/31 of odd years.

About: The Act requires operators to obtain a license from the City that must be renewed periodically. Applicants for a license must prove that they have the appropriate liability insurance, workers’ compensation, and disability insurance coverage. The fee for a license would be $550 biennially. The Act would also require car wash operators, as a condition for obtaining a license, to obtain a surety bond of $150,000. If the car wash is subject to a collective bargaining agreement the amount of the bond required is only $30,000. Depending on an owner’s credit score, the premium for such a bond will cost between $1,500 and $15,000 a year. We have the bonding company with the best rates.

How it works: the purpose is to ensure that car wash operators pay all earned wages, interest on wages, and fringe benefits due to their employees. If the principal fails to pay all sums appropriately, then the Bonding Company will pay and go after the principals to recover any funds they have paid out. The bond protects employees from financial loss.

Glossary of Key Bond Terms

Bid Bond:

A type of contract surety bond that
ensures a bidder for a supply or construction
contract will enter into the contract within the
stipulated timeframe if the company wins the bid.
Default results in the obligee (a government
agency, in this case) receiving the difference
between the amount of the principal’s bid and
the bid of the next low bidder or company
who qualifies for the contract, or the amount
of the bond.

Commercial Surety:

A type of surety bond that
can be required by state and local regulators in
a wide variety of situations to protect consumers
and taxpayers. Some of the most significant for
government policymakers include: license and
permit bonds, reclamation bonds, mortgage
broker bonds and subdivision bonds.

Contract Surety:

Surety bonds that involve
construction projects. In the event a contractor
defaults, contract surety bonds ensure funds
are available to complete the contract and pay
subcontractors, suppliers and laborers.

Fidelity Bond:

A bond a business seeks to
protect itself in the event of a loss incurred
because of employee dishonesty or misconduct.
Some states require these bonds for businesses,
such as title insurance companies and credit
unions, that do business with consumers.

License and Permit Bonds:

Statutes and
regulations require these bonds if a company
seeks to obtain a license or permit in a state
or local jurisdiction. If a principal violates its
obligations, this bond pays the obligee or
other third party.

Miller Act:

Law passed in 1935 that requires
performance and payment bonds for federal
construction projects over a designated
amount, currently for contracts over $150,000.

Money Transmitter Bond:

A bond given by a contractor
to guarantee payment to subcontractors,
laborers and suppliers for work performed
under the contract.

Performance Bond:

A bond that guarantees
performance of the terms of a written contract.

Premium:

Required by a surety company
from the principal for the issuance of a bond.
Performance and payment bonds come with
a one-time premium that typically equals up
to 2 percent of the contract price.

Principal:

Also called “obligor.” This is the
party who seeks the bond and is bound by the
underlying obligation.
Reclamation Bond: Required by a state
regulatory agency, such as the Department
of Environmental Quality, for a business that
seeks to mine or perform related activities on
public lands. These bonds provide a financial
guarantee that the public lands mined will
be restored.

Subcontractor Bond:

A bond that a general
contractor may require of a subcontractor,
which guarantees the subcontractor will
perform work in accordance with the terms of
the contract and will pay for certain labor and
materials under the contract.

Subdivision Bond:

Developers must get this
bond from a surety if they plan to develop a
plot in a municipality to sell lots or homes.
Local development authorities require
these bonds, which guarantee a developer’s
obligation that the project will adhere to state
and local statutes and regulations, before they
issue a development permit.

Surety:

Third party that issues the bond to the
principal and is responsible for fulfilling the
claim in the event of a default or loss.

Surety Bonds:

A written agreement where a
surety obligates itself to a second party, called
the obligee, to answer for the default of the
principal. In the case of public works contracts,
the obligee would be the state agency and the
principal would be the contractor.

New Jersey’s “Small Business Bonding Readiness Assistance Program”

Bid and Performance Bond

 

N.J. Governor Chris Christie recently signed legislation intended to give small businesses a boost by helping them get funding.

Bernard Fleischer and Sons/BFBond.com supports this legislation to help minority owned businesses to be competitive and bid on State and Federal work. By offering programs of $250,000 and up for small businesses, we can help provide the confidence and bonding needed to be considered for such lucrative contracts.

The bill (S123) creates the Small Business Bonding Readiness Assistance Program within the state’s Economic Development Authority, which doles out millions in financing and billions in tax credits to businesses in the Garden State.

Christie signed the bill into law inside the African American Chamber of Commerce’s headquarters in Trenton. Bernard Fleischer and Sons/BFBond.com is committed to helping to give minorities “greater access” to programs like these to help rebuild cities like Trenton, NJ.

The services are designed to provide support and assistance to small businesses seeking surety bonding by providing a better understanding about what surety underwriters are taking into consideration during the bond application process which is often missing when small businesses seek to satisfy bonding requirements on larger projects.

Bid and Performance Contract bonds are often difficult to qualify for and costly for smaller businesses. Along with The Small Business Readiness Assistance Program, Bernard Fleischer and Sons/BFBond.com can help small and minority owned businesses navigate the process.

We can help you grow your knowledge even further and supply competitive bond premiums to enable your business to qualify for profitable government projects. Visit us at www.BFBond.com to learn more or call 1.800.921.1008 and speak to our informative bond underwriters.
