What is a bid bond?

A bid bond is a guarantee to the owner that the principal will honor its bid. The owner is the obligee and may sue the principal and the surety to enforce the bond. If the principal refuses to honor its bid, the principal and surety are liable on the bond for any additional costs the owner incurs in fulfilling the contract. This usually is the difference in dollar amount between the low bid and the second low bid. The penal sum of a bid bond often is usually 5% to 20% of the bid amount.
