Protest Against Rejection of Bid as Nonresponsive for Failure To Furnish Sufficient Bid Guaranty
B-186261: Jun 11, 1976
- Full Report:
The protester objected to the rejection of its bid as nonresponsive for failure to provide a sufficient bid guarantee. The rejection of the bid as nonresponsive was required since the bid guarantee requirement was a material part of the solicitation. The protester's purported certified check without the authorized bank official's signature thereon was unacceptable as a bid guarantee since no commitment existed on the part of the bank to cover the value of the check.
