The ombudsman may refer the party to another official who can resolve the concern. Before consulting with an ombudsman, interested parties must first address their concerns, issues, disagreements, and/or recommendations to the contracting officer for resolution.

If resolution cannot be made by the contracting officer, concerned parties may contact the Center/MAJCOM Ombudsman, Crystal B.
