Case Type Number:
Statute (Common Name):
Debt Collection Act
Brief Description of Case Type:
A third form of debt collection employed by the GSA is administrative wage garnishment. These cases involve the GSA ordering an individual's employer to turn over a portion of the individual's pay to satisfy a delinquent non-tax debt. See 41 CFR 105-57.001. Debtors who wish to contest such garnishments may do so before a judge of the GSA Board of Contract Appeals, see 41 CFR 105-57.005 and 105-57.002(p). (The GSA Board of Contract Appeals no longer exists; its functions were transferred to the CBCA in January 2007).
