What is this tender bond for?

It is for use by a company or organisation inviting tenders for a contract who require security against the risk of the successful bidder failing to enter into the contract.  When that happens, it involves cost for the organisation as well as delay in the contract award process, especially on a high value project.

They need a document which, if it is called, gives them a reasonable amount to cover the potential disruption.  In addition, the bond needs to be in an “on demand” form so that immediately the successful bidder defaults, the beneficiary can demand and obtain payment from the bank that issued the bond.

What does the tender bond contain?

A one page document with a few short paragraphs referring to:

  • the project to which it relates
  • The maximum amount of the bond
  • the procedure for making a call
  • the validity period
