We research the main spheres of applying bank guarantees, which gives us an idea of the essence and types of bank guarantees, their specific features and working with these tools abroad. We prove that currently bank guarantee is not spread enough in domestic turnover. Though there is a clear need in this economic and legal tool and we focus on certain advantages of bank guarantees compared to warranty and bail widely used in Russia. We look at issues of applying bank guarantees in public purchases and pay attention to certain disadvantages of public purchase system such as no purchase planning system, weak control over execution of contracts; no end result control.
