Said check or share draft may be cashed, or the bid bond forfeited as liquidated damages in the event the successful bidder fails or refuses to enter into a contract within ten (10) days of issuance of a Notice of Award and post bond satisfactory to the Agency insuring the faithful fulfillment of the contract and maintenance of said improvements as required by law. The bid bond should be executed by a corporation authorized to contract as a surety in the State of Iowa, and must not contain any conditions either in the body or as an endorsement thereon. For bids over $150,000 the successful bidder will be required to furnish a corporate surety bond in an amount equal to one-hundred percent (100%) of the contract price, said bond to be issued by a responsible surety approved by the Agency, and shall guarantee the faithful performance of the contract and the terms and conditions therein contained, the payment for materials used in the project and the maintenance of said improvements in good repair for not less than one (1) year from the time of acceptance of said improvements by the Agency.

The Contractor will be paid ninety-five per cent (95%) of the Architect¹s/Engineer's estimate of the value of acceptable work completed at the end of the preceding month. Final payment will be made not less than thirty-one (31) days after completion of the work and acceptance by the Agency, subject to the conditions and in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 573 of the Code of Iowa. No such final payment will be due until the Contractor certifies to the Agency that the materials, labor, and services involved in the final estimate have been paid for in accordance with the requirements stated in the specifications.

The preference allowed shall be equal to the preference given or required by the state or foreign country in which the nonresident bidder is a resident.
