Public works contract (type of insurance guarantee)
keith
surety bond
Explanation:
Hello!

I actually looked this word up myself the other day when translating a contract.

Definition: Insurance on a person protecting against that person's dishonesty. A company must often buy this type of insurance when an employee is in a position of trust, handles large sums of money, and is seldom checked on by others.

I've also seen fidelity bond/fidelity insurance.

Best of luck,

Julie
