Excerpt: ... modified IFB by amendment, but inadvertently neglected to provide space for bidder's signature on modified bid form. Where bidder attached original bid form to modified bid form, and original bid form was signed by bidder's secretary, bidder's intent to be bound is clear and bid is not nonresponsive for this reason. BONDS--BID--SIGNATURES--CORPORATE AGENT Bid guarantee is responsive where it is signed by individual but indicates that individual signed in his capacity as secretary of bidder, notarized deposition attached to bid bond indicates that such individual is secretary of bidder, and contracting officer ascertained that bidder's secretary had authority to sign bids and contracts on behalf of bidder. CONTRACTS--PROTESTS--MOOT, ACADEMIC, ETC., QUESTIONS Deficiencies alleged in bids of third and fourth low bidders will not be considered where agency proposes to award to second low bidderj because in view of our finding that second low bidder is responsive, such issues are academic. CONTRACTS--SPECIFICATIONS--FAILURE TO FURNISH SOMETHING REQUIRED--BID BOND--BID NONRESPONSIVE Failure of low bidder to comply with bid guarantee provisions of IFB makes bid nonresponsive, and rejection of bid is proper. CONTRACTS--SPECIFICATIONS--FAILURE TO FURNISH SOMETHING REQUIRED--INVITATION TO BID ATTACHMENTS Failure to complete supplement to Standard Form 19-B, "Representations and Certifications," in advertised procurement does not make bid nonresponsive since Standard Form 19-B is applicable only in negotiated procurements. Even where applicable, failure to complete Standard Form 19-B does not render bid nonresponsive and required information may be submitted after bid opening.
