The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has held that under the Federal Courts Improvement Act of 1982 the district courts retain jurisdiction to consider pre and post-award government contract disputes, and that injunctive relief is properly denied where there is no showing of illegality or irrationality on the part of the awarding agency.
