Contract disputes between federal government agencies and private contractors are decided by either the Court of Federal Claims or by several administrative boards of contract appeals. In fact, the administrative boards issue the majority of these decisions which are an important part of the law that applies to government contracts.

Contract Appeals Decisions offers the full text of every decision issued by the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals and the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals as well as the former boards of the Army Corps of Engineers, Department of Agriculture, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Interior, Department of Labor, Department of Transportation, Department of Energy, General Services Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, and others.

Expert written headnotes accompany each decision. Also included are a topical index, personnel listings and procedural rules for the boards, and biographies of each sitting judge.

    Provides an authoritative frame of reference - Government contract law is unique and stands apart from many of the rules developed under commercial contracts between private parties. That's why administrative case law provides such valuable guidance in interpreting particular contract clauses. For example, decisions on the allowability of costs are a virtual necessity to understanding the cost-reimbursement type of contract. When you need to know what important precedents have been set for the settlement of certain contract disputes, turn to Contract Appeals Decisions.

    Helpful tools make research a snap - Contract Appeals Decisions includes Citator and Case Tables to help you quickly find specific cases and case references. The Citator Table lists each case by name, as well as any decision in which the case is subsequently cited or discussed. You can also see whether a given case has been applied, distinguished, or overruled in later decisions. You'll be able to determine the full impact and precedent value of any decision at a glance!
