A firm protested an Army contract award, contending that the award was improper, since the awardee submitted a bid bond with a surety not listed in the Federal Register. GAO held that the protester failed to state a valid basis of protest, since: (1) the awardee's bid bond was executed by an individual surety; and (2) there was no requirement that an individual surety be listed in the Federal Register. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
