The US Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA) released its FY 2018 Annual Report in December 2018. Significant developments in FY 2018 included the institution of new board procedural rules, the transition to all-electronic files from a combination of electronic filings and paper file-based systems, and the addition of Disaster Disputes stemming from damages caused by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Gustav.
From a case-load perspective, the number of cases filed at the CBCA ticked up to 409 in FY 2018 from 385 in FY 2017. The number of CBCA cases appealed to the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit also increased 69 percent in 2018 to twenty-seven from sixteen in 2017.
