The idea of the performance bond is that somebody is saying "We are worried that you're not gonna make it "all the way through the project," you as the general contractor, "so we need there to be some insurance in place "that says if something goes wrong, "the insurance company will step in "and make the project happen "without it costing us extra money." So the insurance company, the only reason they're gonna give you a performance bond if you're the general contractor is that they trust that you're likely to make it through. But they don't believe that they're gonna be brought in to be able to finish the project for you. So they think it's a good bet, they're gonna get paid a little bit of money, but they're probably not gonna have to pay any money out.
