Now, where in your experience, where on this planet does someone require a 50%-of-net-contract-value as a performance bond?

Government contracts?..........

Sorry, Badger, not so. Goobermint contracts -- and I speak from direct experience, having written software for our glorious goobermint for a decade or so -- usually included liquidated damages provisions (quite sensibly), but I've never put up a dime as a performance bond.

Perhaps it's different in construction contracts, but I rather doubt it. If a construction project would take any length of time, a company that put up 50% of net contract value would lose its ass!
