On federal construction projects, the Miller Act requires bonds to be posted guaranteeing payment and performance when the cost is more than $100,000. The Act also requires payment protections for contracts over $25,000 but not more than $100,000. Additionally, the Miller Act permits every person who has furnished labor or material to the federal project to file a civil suit against the payment bond if they remain unpaid within 90 days after completion of the project.
