Abstract:

Each year numerous Air Force contracts are disputed under the provision of the Disputes Clause in the Armed Service Procurement Regulation. The contracting officers final decision in about 200 disputes each year are appealed to the Armed Service Board of Contract Appeals. The research effort was designed to identify key issues involved in those disputes and to determine if relationships existed between dispute issues and contract disputes. The study concluded that key issues could be identified and that they differed amongst different categories of procurement. It was also concluded that there was a significant relationship between dispute issues and contract category and that knowledge of that relationship should prove beneficial to the contracting community in its litigation prevention efforts.
