Silver Brazing

However, this fails to take into account the time and expense connected with the pre-qualification process. Who devised the evaluation criteria? Who performs the actual review? Presumably there is an evaluation of prior experience, human and physical resources, financial condition including other contractual obligations, credit status, and the plan for performance of the work. How long does the evaluation of the bidders take and how much does it cost? Is it more than $3,000?

Regardless of how expertly the pre-qualification is performed, projects can still have problems and defaults. In fact, disputes are normal in construction. When they boil over, it can be detrimental to the project owner (the city) costing more time and money.

In the absence of a performance bond, what solution is available to the taxpayers if a contractor does fail in the midst of the project? The city would be forced to conduct an evaluation regarding the remaining portion of the work, then re-advertise the project and spend additional time and money to bring in a completion contractor. (Contractors expect to make remarkable profits when performing a rescue.).

In light of the significant downside risk connected with this strategy, it is hard to imagine how the city concluded it was prudent. The approach taken by most public bodies is to require a 100 % performance and payment bond. Everyone hopes the project will go smoothly with related bills paid on time. The reality is that most jobs do, but not all.

Our conclusion is that this alternative strategy places an unnecessary risk on the tax payers. Let's face it, bonds are an economical way to screen the contractors, assure successful performance and guarantee bills are paid. The 100 % P&P bond requirement is normally statutory because it is the most efficient way to protect the public interest.

I wonder how long it will be before humans are completely taken over by technology and rendered obsolete. It's not an idle question. Take a look at all the occupations that have shuttered their doors and gone out of business.
