Answer:- Thanks for writing to us! As per your query, according to Rule 39 of the Public Procurement Rules, 2004 provides that where needed and clearly expressed in the bidding documents, the procuring agency shall require the successful bidder to furnish a performance guarantee, which shall not exceed ten percent of the contract amount. It is for a procuring agency to decide and demand performance guarantee at a prescribed percentage of the contract amount. However, mode and method for submission of performance guarantee is not given in Rule 39 for procurement of goods and services, which needs to be elaborated in the bidding documents. It is upto the procuring agency to decide mode and method of submission of performance guarantee in an appropriate manner from the successful bidder acceptable to the procuring agency.
