Private Party/Individual
Brief Description of Case Type: 
These cases constitute a second form of debt collection, this time by administrative offset. GSA may withhold money it owes to the debtor (who is usually not a GSA or federal employee eligible for salary offset) in order to satisfy the debt. See 41 CFR 105-55.011. Debtors against whom an administrative offset is proposed have the opportunity for an oral hearing before a judge of the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals when the indebtedness question cannot be resolved by documentary evidence alone. See id; see also 41 CFR 105-55.002(l) (defining "hearing official").
