A tender guarantee /bid bond is a bank guarantee by which a guarantor (the bank) undertakes to pay to a beneficiary certain amount of money if a tender participant (the guarantee principal) revokes its bid during the bidding process or refuses to conclude contract in accordance with conditions of the accepted tender.
In a tender guarantee, the original tender offer, the beneficiary’s obligations and required documents will be clearly listed.
This document should be carefully read by the Bank and the Beneficiary.
Both the Bank and the Beneficiary should sign and return a copy, and once signed, both parties should get a copy. To avoid any future disputes, both parties may wish to have their signatures witnessed.
If either party wishes to amend the agreement in the future, both parties should agree to do so, and the original agreement and amendments should be recorded in writing and signed by both parties.
