American Bar Association Manual

The American Bar Association, Section on Public Contract Law, has published a manual entitled Practicing Before The Federal Boards of Contract Appeals. The manual is designed "to provide simple, straightforward guidance for contractors who bring appeals to federal boards of contract appeals (BCAs) without representation by an attorney (pro se litigants), and for attorneys who may not be familiar with BCA practice."

As the manual says, it "does not substitute in any way for a BCA's own rules." The ABA Manual may, however, be helpful to prospective litigants.
