Bond Claim Documentation

MissouriBond ClaimsLien Waivers

I normally work on private projects where subcontractors provide lien waivers with their monthly payment applications. I am working on a federal project and my understanding of the Miller Act is that there is no "lien waiver" but rather "bond claims". Is there any monthly documentation (similar to a lien waiver on private projects) that subcontractors need to provide monthly on federal projects? Or is the process just that they file a "bond claim" whenever they are not paid?

Many lien waivers also include a waiver of bond claims, so they could be aptly called Lien and Bond Waivers. Your project role is unclear, but it appears that you are working with the GC. If so, you should have subcontractors sign and submit a waiver form that is broad enough to include bond claims.
