The Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA) is an independent forum, which has existed for over fifty years. The ASBCA was established on May 1, 1962, and their facilities are located in Falls Church, Virginia. The ASBCA hears claims resulting from contracts between civilian providers of goods and services as well as representatives of the United States military. The ASBCA functions under the Contract Disputes Act (CDA), its Charter, or other remedy-granting provisions.

The ABSCA mostly deals with matters involving appeals by contractors from final decisions or failures to issue final decisions. Its initial function is to hear and resolve post-award contract disputes between government contractors and the Department of Defense, the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and other individual agencies.

The Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals exercises jurisdiction over contractor appeals on claims seeking equitable adjustments. It also hears appeals on contractor claims where the availability of the relief was implied by the contract. The ASBCA has been designated as the representative of the Secretary of the Army, Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of the Navy, and the Secretary of the Air Force.

The Board has all necessary powers to properly perform their duties. They have the authority to issue methods of procedure and regulations for its conduct and preparation of appeals and issuance of opinions. To be a member of the board, attorneys must be qualified in the manner prescribed by the Contract Disputes Act (CDA) of 1978. Members of the Board are designated Administrative Judges. The Chairman may designate a judge of the Board to serve as an acting Chairman or acting vice chairman.
