Civilian Board of Contract Appeals

Understanding the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals

The Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA) is responsible for resolving disputes related to government contracts. The CBCA primarily hears appeals from contractors who have disputes with various federal agencies regarding issues such as contract performance, payment, and other contract-related matters.

The board comprises administrative judges who review evidence, hear arguments, and make decisions to resolve contract disputes between contractors and the government. Its objective is to provide a fair and impartial forum for resolving disagreements and ensuring that government contracts are executed in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations. The decisions made by the CBCA are legally binding and can be appealed to higher courts if necessary.
