Performance bond

A surety bond between two parties, insuring one party against loss if the terms of a contract are not fulfilled. Usually part of a construction contract or supply agreement.

Performance Bond

A bond that a company issues to another guaranteeing repayment in case some project fails. For example, suppose a company hires a construction firm to build an apartment building. The construction firm may issue a performance bond to the company. If the apartment building is not constructed according to specifications, the company will not incur any losses because the construction company must repay the bond. This reduces the risk to the bondholder that another party to a contract will not fulfill its obligations.

performance bond

An insurance policy often required on government construction projects.If the contractor does not perform the work it contracted to do, the insurance company will either hire someone else to complete the job or will pay off the resulting damages, up to policy limits. Sometimes it is inaccurately called a performance and completion bond. Technically, liability under a performance bond is contingent on the contracting party paying according to the terms of its construction contract.Contrast with completion bond,where the contracting party does not have to pay anything to the insurance company,even though it might have been obligated to pay the contractor. As a result, most bonds are performance bonds and it is very difficult to obtain a completion bond.
