A firm protested the Department of the Interior's rejection of its bid as nonresponsive, contending that: (1) the facsimile copy of its bid bond was sufficient to satisfy the bond requirement; and (2) its bid was responsive. GAO held that: (1) the protester's bid bond was of questionable enforceability because it included only a reproduction of the surety's signature; (2) bid nonresponsiveness could not be cured after bid opening; and (3) Interior properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
