Based on the following information, though not directly stated, it appears that the Surety Bond Company will issue the 1099s. SEE BELOW:

------------------------------------------

Once the surety's obligations have matured and it has gotten involved, it will first assess the situation and launch an 'investigation'. In these investigations, the surety always considers your best interest as well as that of the claimant (the project owner or subcontractor).

Therefore, if you happen to run into difficulties or have a claim filed against your bond, your best friend is your surety and you should immediately contact them and work together on resolving the issue.

If the surety finds you (the bond's principal) to have defaulted, and that there are valid grounds for a claim against your bond, it will take action.

Depending on the particular situation, sureties have a number of possible approaches to a potential or already occurred contractor default. There are four primary approaches to such a situation, though a surety will usually try to avoid contractor default if notified on time.

If it can't be helped and a contractor defaults, sureties usually follow one of the following courses of action:

  • Take over
  • Tender
  • Contractor assistance
  • Obligee completion

While it does appear that the surety bond company should issue the 1099s, this may not always be the case. Based on my understanding of the previous information forwarded to you, the surety bond company may require that the contractor issue the 1099s. As there is no definitive answer to this question, this is something that you should address with the surety bond company.
