A firm protested the Navy's rejection of its bid as nonresponsive for nurse call system repair, contending that its submission of the original bid bond should have cured any defect arising from its submission of a facsimile of the bid bond prior to bid opening. GAO held that the Navy properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive, since the protester could not cure its nonresponsive bid after bid opening. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
