Argued March 19, 2002

This appeal is from an order of the Superior Court (Gardner, J.) dismissing for lack of subject matter jurisdiction a petition for review of a decision by the District of Columbia Contract Appeals Board (the CAB). Although the government contract in question had been awarded by the District of Columbia Financial Responsibility and Management Assistance Authority (the Authority), a congressionally-established agency with unique contracting powers, the CAB purported to exercise jurisdiction over a protest by appellant challenging the bid solicitation process (conducted by the District of Columbia Public Schools) that took place before the Authority intervened and awarded the contract. When the CAB denied the protest on the merits, appellant petitioned for review in the Superior Court, see District of Columbia v. Group Ins. Admin., 633 A.2d 2, 14 (D.C. 1993), resulting in the dismissal now appealed from.

We hold, in keeping with Judge Gardner’s decision, that the governing statutes deprived the Superior Court of jurisdiction to review the denial of a challenge to a contract awarded by the Authority. We hold further that, once the Authority intervened and awarded the contract, the CAB likewise had no jurisdiction to entertain a protest challenging the bid solicitation that preceded the award.
