Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals    



Effective March 16, 2020, until further notice: Due to Coronavirus-related restrictions, the Board is open but most employees are working remotely. The best way to communicate with the Board is by email at or by telephone at 703-681-8502. Do not send paper documents to the Board. Unclassified documents, other than Rule 4 file documents, may be emailed to If a document is too large (more than 10MB) to be sent by email, it may be submitted via DoD SAFE. Contact the Recorder to receive DoD SAFE instructions. If you submit Rule 4 file documents via DoD SAFE, you are also required to submit a copy of the Rule 4 file on a disk once you are able to do so.

APPELLANTS PLEASE NOTE: Notices of Appeal and Complaints should be submitted without exhibits or other attachments (except, attach a copy of the contracting officer's final decision, if you have one). Documents attached to a Notice of Appeal or Complaint are not routinely considered part of the record upon which the Board's decision will be rendered. Board Rule 4(a) requires the government to transmit to the Board and appellant an appeal file consisting of documents the government considers relevant to the appeal. Once you receive the government's Rule 4 file, you may submit any additional documents you consider relevant to the appeal (see Board Rule 4(b)).
