Claim relating to a contract is a claim that cannot be resolved under a contract clause other than the clause at 52.233-1. A “claim arising under a contract” is a claim that can be resolved under a contract clause, other than the clause at 52.233-1, Disputes, that provides for the relief sought by the claimant; however, relief for such claim can also be sought under the clause at 52.233-1. This distinction is recognized by the clause with its Alternate I (see 33.215).
