The Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals published its FY16 Report of Transactions and Proceedings, which provides statistics regarding the adjudication of appeals between contractors and the Army, Navy, Air Force, Corps of Engineers, DLA, DCMA, CIA, NASA, other Defense agencies, and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. This year’s report once again reflects the Board’s impressive success at resolving matters via alternative dispute resolution.  In total, 93% of ADRs concluded in FY16 – including binding ADR, non-binding ADR, and ADR of undocketed appeals – were successfully resolved.  The report also reflects a slight uptick in successful appeals at the Board, noting that the appellant prevailed in 57% the appeals decided in the merits (up from 53% in FY15).
