Neutral Evaluation

> Neutral Evaluation is a process in which the parties present their cases to a neutral third party with expertise in the substantive area of the dispute and who renders a non-binding reasoned evaluation on the merit of the case. This process combines features of both a decision-making and a non-decision-making process. During the process, the neutral may be invited to serve as mediator or facilitator.

> In the construction industry, Neutral Evaluation takes the form of a Dispute Review Board (DRB) or Dispute Adjudication Board (DAB) depending on the binding nature of the recommendation from the third party neutral. See from the Dispute Resolution Board Foundation for more details.


> Like litigation, arbitration utilizes an adversarial approach that requires a neutral party to render a decision. Unlike litigation, arbitration generally allows the parties to design most aspects of the resolution process to suit their needs and the nature of the dispute. Further, the parties to an arbitration are able to choose the arbitrator, an option which is not available in the traditional court system.
