Two firms protested the Veterans Administration's (VA) rejection of their bid for a replacement fire alarm system as nonresponsive. GAO held that: (1) since the protesters submitted the bid in the name of one firm and a bid bond in the name of a joint venture consisting of both firms, the bid bond was materially deficient; and (2) since the surety's obligation was unclear, the bid was nonresponsive. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
