The protester objected to the award of a contract, alleging that the bid bond submitted by the awardee was deficient. The awardee submitted a bid bond with a signed bid form which included a statement from the bidder that a bond was enclosed. The bond contained the surety's seal and signature, the solicitation number, the penal sum required, and the business address of the bidder. The identification on the bond of the principal as "R.O. Contracting,"when the bidder was "R.O. Contracting Company," and the failure of the bidder to sign the bond could be waived as minor informalities since the surety's liability under the solicitation was clear and enforceable by the government.
