Miller Act for Federal Projects

Federal Project Performance and Payment Bonds

Under the Miller Act, all federal projects in excess of $100,000 must be bonded.  The contractor must furnish both a performance and payment bond.  However, the Miller Act also limits the right to initiate suit to those dealing with the prime contractor.  There are also important notice requirements that may be applicable to preserve or protect your bond rights.

The Miller Act protects subcontractors, suppliers, and the federal government by requiring the prime contractor to provide surety bonds for performance of the construction contract and payment for labor and materials.
If you are a prime contractor, a subcontractor or a supplier on a federal project, the Miller Act can affect you.  As a prime contractor, you must post surety bonds.  As a subcontractor or supplier, you need to know your rights in the event of nonpayment.
