The Postal Board of Contract Appeals (Board) hears appeals from disputes of contracts entered into by the United States Postal Service and the Postal Regulatory Commission. The Board also has jurisdiction over certain cases under the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA).
The Board has three different procedures for hearing cases: the standard (long-form) procedure, an Expedited Procedure (for Small Claims), and an Accelerated Procedure. In the Expedited and Accelerated Procedures, procedural requirements are relaxed, and the Board has a goal of issuing decisions within 120 days and 180 days, respectively.
In case following the standard and Accelerated procedures, parties can file a motion for reconsideration (such a motion is not possible under the Expedited procedure unless there has been fraud). After reconsideration, Board decisions are final.
