Small business government contractors and large businesses should be aware that the Contract Board of Appeals’ jurisdiction when it comes to contract claims against the federal government and the Court’s authority to hear cases under Section 847 of the National Defense Authorization Act extends to all agencies of the federal government except the Department of Defense and its constituent agencies, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the United States Postal Service, the Postal Rate Commission, and the Tennessee Valley Authority. The Contract Disputes Act also gives the court subject matter jurisdiction claims denial and other disputes related to your contract.

  • Get help assessing the merits of your case before submitting your appeal to the Civilian Board of Contract Appeal
  • Make sure that you have preserved your rights to appeal at the lower agency level before filing your appeal
  • Have you met the specific requirements of the Contract Disputes Act when you filed your claim with the Contracting Officer?


With law offices located in Washington DC and Colorado, the US government contracts lawyers and CBCA appellate court attorneys at Watson & Associates, LLC  frequently provide general contractor services and help for federal contractors to appeal adverse contracting officer final decisions to the CBCA.

  • A careful review of your case can uncover serious government error and can potentially get the agency decision reversed.
  • To prevail in appellate decisions you must be able to show some serious level of error and not simply disagree with an agency’s decision.

Avoiding common procedural problems:

The DC Contract Appeals Board will hear and decide contract disputes once the appellant shows that the court has subject matter jurisdiction to hear your case. Many cases appealed to the US Civilian Board of Contract Appeals when there was no legal contracting officer final decision. Meeting the requirements of the Contract Disputes Act is one of the most highly litigated issues.

  • Federal government contractors use our legal expertise to avoid costly legal mistakes with US Civilian Board of Contract Appeals rules of procedure
  • The goal of our US government contracts lawyers is to focus on the legal merits of the case and to convince the Civilian Contract Board of Appeals

    that the agency committed a legal error or violated procurement laws.

For example, when a case is referred to the Department of Justice for potential fraud, the Contracting Officer lacks authority to issue a final decision on a contract claim. When a contractor files a Civilian Board of Contract Appeals case based on these facts due to the “deemed denial” rule, the case would be dismissed on appeal.
