28 U.S.C. § 1491 : US Code - Section 1491: Claims against United States generally; actions involving Tennessee Valley Authority

      (a)(1) The United States Court of Federal Claims shall have
    jurisdiction to render judgment upon any claim against the United
    States founded either upon the Constitution, or any Act of Congress
    or any regulation of an executive department, or upon any express
    or implied contract with the United States, or for liquidated or
    unliquidated damages in cases not sounding in tort. For the purpose
    of this paragraph, an express or implied contract with the Army and
    Air Force Exchange Service, Navy Exchanges, Marine Corps Exchanges,
    Coast Guard Exchanges, or Exchange Councils of the National
    Aeronautics and Space Administration shall be considered an express
    or implied contract with the United States.
      (2) To provide an entire remedy and to complete the relief
    afforded by the judgment, the court may, as an incident of and
    collateral to any such judgment, issue orders directing restoration
    to office or position, placement in appropriate duty or retirement
    status, and correction of applicable records, and such orders may
    be issued to any appropriate official of the United States. In any
    case within its jurisdiction, the court shall have the power to
    remand appropriate matters to any administrative or executive body
    or official with such direction as it may deem proper and just. The
    Court of Federal Claims shall have jurisdiction to render judgment
    upon any claim by or against, or dispute with, a contractor arising
    under section 7104(b)(1) of title 41, including a dispute
    concerning termination of a contract, rights in tangible or
    intangible property, compliance with cost accounting standards, and
    other nonmonetary disputes on which a decision of the contracting
    officer has been issued under section 6 (!1) of that Act.

      (b)(1) Both the Unites (!2) States Court of Federal Claims and
    the district courts of the United States shall have jurisdiction to
    render judgment on an action by an interested party objecting to a
    solicitation by a Federal agency for bids or proposals for a
    proposed contract or to a proposed award or the award of a contract
    or any alleged violation of statute or regulation in connection
    with a procurement or a proposed procurement. Both the United
    States Court of Federal Claims and the district courts of the
    United States shall have jurisdiction to entertain such an action
    without regard to whether suit is instituted before or after the
    contract is awarded.

      (2) To afford relief in such an action, the courts may award any
    relief that the court considers proper, including declaratory and
    injunctive relief except that any monetary relief shall be limited
    to bid preparation and proposal costs.
      (3) In exercising jurisdiction under this subsection, the courts
    shall give due regard to the interests of national defense and
    national security and the need for expeditious resolution of the
    action.
      (4) In any action under this subsection, the courts shall review
    the agency's decision pursuant to the standards set forth in
    section 706 of title 5.
      (5) If an interested party who is a member of the private sector
    commences an action described in paragraph (1) with respect to a
    public-private competition conducted under Office of Management and
    Budget Circular A-76 regarding the performance of an activity or
    function of a Federal agency, or a decision to convert a function
    performed by Federal employees to private sector performance
    without a competition under Office of Management and Budget
    Circular A-76, then an interested party described in section
    3551(2)(B) of title 31 shall be entitled to intervene in that
    action.
      (6) Jurisdiction over any action described in paragraph (1)
    arising out of a maritime contract, or a solicitation for a
    proposed maritime contract, shall be governed by this section and
    shall not be subject to the jurisdiction of the district courts of
    the United States under the Suits in Admiralty Act (chapter 309 of
    title 46) or the Public Vessels Act (chapter 311 of title 46).
      (c) Nothing herein shall be construed to give the United States
    Court of Federal Claims jurisdiction of any civil action within the
    exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of International Trade, or of
    any action against, or founded on conduct of, the Tennessee Valley
    Authority, or to amend or modify the provisions of the Tennessee
    Valley Authority Act of 1933 with respect to actions by or against
    the Authority.
