We did some construction work (lost money). The public agency required a performance bond on our original bid which we obtained. We eventually had a change order for about 2/3s of the original cost that they didn't require a bond on (though our contract with the bonding agency mentions that we were supposed to tell them about change orders at the time which we didn't). Project is over. Bonding agency wants another $1700 to cover the change order. I see nothing in our contract with the bonding company or public agency that requires us to pay that.
But if that's the common practice, we'll pay it. We just don't know enough about construction (never doing that again) to know if that's the common practice.
