Pursuant to the Contract Disputes Act of 1978 (41 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) and provisions of the Board's charter, the Board determines with administrative finality (subject only to judicial review) appeals from final decisions of contracting officers on disputes relating to contracts made by elements of the Department of Defense and several civilian agencies under separate delegations of authority. Proceedings are quasi-judicial. Decisions are made strictly on the evidentiary record (testimony and documents) and applicable regulations, statutes, and general law.

In accordance with the Contract Disputes Act and Board rules, the contractor may elect an optional accelerated procedure where the controversial sum does not exceed $50,000 or may elect a small claims (expedited) procedure where the controversial sum does not exceed $10,000.
