The SPE is the agency head for the purposes of FAR 33.203(b).

2833.209 Suspected fraudulent claims.

The Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA) hears and decides contract disputes originating from DOJ.

2833.214-70 Policy.

It is DOJ's goal to resolve contract disputes before the issuance of a contracting officer's final decision under the Contract Disputes Act.
