Performance bond for suppliers and services

A guarantee for the quantitative, qualitative fulfillment of the contract

Protection against risks during the implementation period of a public contract

Any company that wants to conclude contracts with the state is obliged to constitute the performance bond. With Coface’s contract surety bonds, you comply not only with the sector’s legal obligations (sub-contracting) but also with current market practices.

  • What is it?

    The performance bond is constituted by the contractor (Insured) in order to ensure the contracting authority/entity (Beneficiary) the quantitative, qualitative fulfillment and within the agreed period of the sectoral contract/subsequent contract.

  • Which are the insured risks?

    Actual, direct losses caused to the Beneficiary during the period of validity of the insurance policy and the public/sectoral procurement contract, resulting from those situations in which the Insured, through his sole fault, does not perform his contractual obligations towards Beneficiary upon signing the public/sectoral procurement contract.

  • Why choose?

    Contributes to securing the procedures in implementing a public contract.
