How does a New York Highway Permit Performance Bond work?

This bond has three parties:

Principal – the person who is asked to obtain the bond
Obligee – New York Department of Transportation
Surety – surety bond provider

The principal is the party required to perform all the pre-determined conditions stated in the bond. The Obligee is the party who is requiring the bond. The role of the surety is to assure the obligee that the principal is capable of fulfilling the obligations. The surety will also provide financial security by backing this bond in case the principal violates the obligations. When a claim is made against the bond, the surety will evaluate the claim by identifying the ordinance, rules, regulations, and laws that govern it.

The surety is required to ensure that the obligee will be paid if the claim is valid. After the payment has been settled by the surety, the principal will be asked to reimburse the said payment.
