Funds Control​​(contract bonds only)

Funds Control is a risk management tool that allows the surety, through the surety’s in-house facility or a third party administrator, to process the project funds. This feature simply assures that all of the contract proceeds are used to pay costs directly associated with the project and not borrowed for other projects or overhead requirements. Funds control is handled in accordance with the contractor’s project budget and consent prior to paying the various suppliers, subcontractors, laborer’s etc.


Collateral is sometimes the only option, ​and simply consist of the contractor/principal depositing acceptable collateral (Cash, Irrevocable Letter of Credit (ILOC), CD, Brokerage Account, Deeds of Trust on Property, etc.) to support the bond. The amount is specific to each case but normally will range from 10-100% of the bond.

Third Party Indemnity

Third Party Indemnity is used when there is an outside party with an acceptable financial statement willing to provide a guarantee on the principal’s behalf.
