Typical Performance Bond Costs

The price of a Performance Bond will vary from contract to contract. There are many variables involved when determining the final rate charged for a Performance Bond. Because of the variability of the factors involved, the rates for a specific bond amount can vary widely.

The factors involved in determining Contract Performance Bond rates

There are many factors that go into determining the cost of a Performance Bond, such as (but not limited to):

  • Bond Amount
  • Type and size of contract
  • State where the contractual obligation resides
  • The Surety Company quoting the rate
  • The Principal's credit and/or financial standing
  • The Principal's past job history and work on hand
  • Required and/or necessary fees charged by an agent or broker

Typical Contract Performance Bond Rates

Rates for Performance Bonds can vary depending on the qualification of the Contractor, as well as type and size of the contract. The rate paid is typically a percentage of either the contract amount or bond amount. The average rates and costs can range from 1% - 5%. These are only averages, whereas, a highly qualified Contractor may obtain lower Bond rates compared to a Contractor with credit issues or financial deficiencies. Viking Bond Service, Inc. will always offer the program that is best suited for the Contractor at the lowest rate possible.

Agent/Broker Fees

In some cases additional fees may be charged for a surety bond. Fees are charged by agencies or brokers in some cases to supplement or replace commissions. In many instances, small commissions must be split between agencies, brokers, and other licensed third parties during the processing of a single Bond file. Basic operating costs and overhead, for instance; overnight fees, charges for credit reports, long distance faxes and phone calls, may contribute to fees charged. There are paid producers who review files and coordinate with Principals, Sureties, and agents during the processing of Bond files. In addition commissions are paid to suitably licensed originating agents and agencies when issuing a Performance Bond in many cases.
