By Government Contracts Editorial Staff
The General Services Administration has issued a final rule amending the rules of procedure for the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals for cases arising under the Contract Disputes Act (41 USC 7101–7109), and for disputes between insurance companies and the Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency arising under the Federal Crop Insurance Act. The amendments simplify and modernize access to the board by establishing a preference for electronic filing, increasing conformity between the board’s rules and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, streamlining the wording of the rules, and clarifying current rules and practices. The rule also makes stylistic and other changes to board rules 1 through 35, 51 through 54, and 202. The board’s current rules were issued in 2008 and were last amended in 2011. The final rule makes no changes to the March 28, 2018, proposed rule (83 FR 13211). For the text of the rule, which goes into effect on September 17, 2018, see 83 FR 41009.
