MDOT recently changed their pass-through warranty bond provisions to allow a first-tier subcontractor who is responsible for more than one warranty bond on a project to now provide a single warranty bond.
Prior to this change a first-tier subcontractor would have to provide a separate warranty bond for each item they were constructing on a project that had a warranty requirement. With this change the single warranty bond will guarantee the performance of all of the warranty obligations of that subcontractor on that project.
This warranty bond change is the direct result of MITA’s ongoing efforts and collaboration with MDOT to improve the overall warranty program.
