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, to your Notice of Appeal). 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.

Once you receive the government's Rule 4 file, you may supplement the Rule 4 file with any additional documents you consider relevant to the appeal (see Board Rule 4(b)).
