New ADR Policy for Contract Disputes
Part 5133 of the Army Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (AFARS) has been revised to
include Army ADR policy in contract disputes. This policy, stated in new subpart 5133.204,
expressly implements current FAR and general Army ADR policy on the voluntary use of informal
dispute resolution techniques to resolve claims and potential claims, to the maximum extent
practicable and appropriate. The complete provision can be found here:
