The complainant also states that she was engaged under Special Service Agreements (SSA) between 2010 and December 2013. Contracts of this type expressly provide that the persons with whom they are concluded cannot be considered as officials and that any disputes arising from them must be resolved through arbitration. The Tribunal has already ruled that it has no jurisdiction over disputes submitted to it by holders of such contracts (see Judgment 3551).
