Abstract : The objective of this study was to provide a synthesis of appealed contract disputes and to identify the relationships of the key variables which cause disputes in Air Force contracts. Using data from 180 FY-74 ASBCA Appeal Data Reports, an attempt was made to investigate relationships among eight variable types (major command, award method, contract type, procurement type, party of interest, principal clause, contract amount, and claim amount). Considerable effort was directed toward constructing 28 chi-square contingency tables and the results are discussed.
