Its responsibilities involve settling disputes between federal employees and the federal government, and it also focuses on disputes involving labor unions.

- Handling agencies’ or unions’ appeals of an arbitrator’s decision as exceptions to grievance arbitration awards
- Adjudicating negotiability disputes that may arise during collective bargaining between unions and agencies
