Oregon Flagging Contractor Bond

Bond Penalty: $20,000

An Oregon flagging contractor surety bond is one of two types of insurance required by the Construction Contractors Board in order to obtain a license. Pursuant to 2017 ORS 701.470, a "construction flagging contractor" means any individual or firm that employs, contracts with or obtains through an employee leasing organzation, one or more individuals to act as construction flagger(s). There are application requirements however certain residential and commercial contractors are exempt from this requirement.

The Oregon flagging contractor bond must be run to the State of Oregon, be issued in the amount of $20,000 and executed by a surety company licensed to do business in Oregon. On its face, the surety bond appears to be a simple compliance obligation however the underlying statute gives it the same treatment as residential and commercial contractor bonds. The board by rule may establish conditions for applicants or persons licensed under this chapter under which the applicant or licensee must file a bond of an amount up to five times as much as the amount required ordinarily of an applicant or licensee.", if the licensee should incur a violation. The following must be submitted to the Board to obtain the license.

  • A completed Construction Flagging Contractor application and fee
  • A construction flagging contractor surety bond in the amount of $20,000
