New disaster arbitration process launched

MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST — Certain applicants for federal public assistance funding resulting from damages incurred from hurricanes Katrina and Rita may participate in a new arbitration process pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, according to FEMA.

The new arbitration system is designed to further recovery efforts by providing final adjudication of particular disputes involving projects in excess of $500,000 by an independent, neutral panel of arbitrators.

The Civilian Board of Contract Appeals will be providing the arbitration services through three judge panels.
