Operations & Maintenance Bond

What is an Operations and Maintenance Bond?

In the case of a Design, Build and Operate Project, a Certificate of Practical Completion marks the point at which the Contractor has completed contractual responsibilities and can release the Works to the client. The Contractor then moves into the Operations phase, depending on the project this could be 1 year, 10 years or longer.

Operation and Maintenance Bonds are a form of Performance Bond following completion of a project. They provide security to the project owner (the Obligee) for the ongoing running of the facility or plant which has been constructed.
