This morning the Federal Circuit issued a precedential opinion in a government contracts case and a nonprecedential opinion in a case appealed from the Merit Systems Protection Board. Here are the introductions to the opinions.

Parsons Evergreene, LLC (“Parsons”) appeals from two decisions by the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (“Board”). The Board granted in part and denied in part Parsons’ claims for equitable adjustment on a contract for the design and construction of two buildings at McGuire Air Force Base.
