When government contractors receive an adverse decision from the contracting officer or any other government contracting agency, filing a timely appeal to the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA) would be the next step.
However, small business contractors and large businesses should be aware that the CBCA’s jurisdiction and 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.
With law offices located in Washington DC and Colorado, the government contract lawyers at Watson & Associates, LLC government contracts lawyers frequently help federal government contractors to appeal adverse contracting officer final decisions to the CBCA.

Avoiding common procedural problems: many cases appealed to the 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. The goal of our government contracts lawyers is to focus on the legal merits of the case and to convince the CBCA 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.
