ArizonaBond Claims

Arizona does not technically require a first-tier subcontractor (a sub contracting with the GC directly) to provide a preliminary notice on an Arizona public project in order to retain the right to make a later bond claim. What is that based on? Most other websites say that in Arizona the preliminary notice must be filed in order to preserve bond claim (and Lien) rights

If by "first-tier subcontractor" you mean a subcontractor with a direct contract with the general/prime contractor, then the only requirement to make a bond claim on a public project is to file suit against the general/prime contractor and the surety within one year of the breach of the contract with the general contractor.  Only subcontractors that do not have a direct or implied contract with the contractor furnishing the bond (in your case this is presumably the general/prime contractor) must follow the requirements of the mechanic's lien statute.  The applicable statute where this is laid out is A.R.S. § 34-223.
