C., has exclusive nationwide jurisdiction over a large number of diverse subject areas, such as appeals in all patent cases, all government contract cases, all international trade cases, all government contract cases, all government personnel cases, all cases involving monetary claims against the United States under the Tucker Acts, veterans cases, and many others. Additional subject areas have been added to this court's jurisdiction almost yearly. To keep abreast of its varied and growing jurisdiction, the court is requesting necessary increases in its funding as detailed below.

The following is a more complete listing of the Federal Circuit's exclusive jurisdiction. It hears appeals from: (A) final decisions of all Federal district courts in cases arising under 28 U.S.C. §1338(a), relating to patent laws generally, 35 U.S.C. §§145–146, relating to review of decisions of the Patent and Trademark Office, Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences, 28 U.S.C. §1346(a)(2), relating to Little Tucker Act claims against the United States, and section 211 of the Economic Stabilization Act of 1970, section 5 of the Emergency Petroleum Allocation Act of 1973, section 506(c) of the Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978, and section 523 of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act relating to all statutes formerly under the jurisdiction of the Temporary Emergency Court of Appeals; (B) final decisions of the United States Court of International Trade, 28 U.S.C. §2645(c); (C) final decisions of the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, 38 U.S.C. §7292; (D) final decisions of the United States Court of Federal Claims, 28 U.S.C. §2522 and 42 U.S.C. §§300aa-12(f); (E) final decisions of the High Court of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, 48 U.S.C. §1681 note (1988) (Compact of Free Association; Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of Marshall Islands, Title II, Title One, Article VII, §174(c)); (F) final determinations of the United States International Trade Commission relating to unfair practices in import trade made under 19 U.S.C. §1337; (G) findings of the Secretary of Commerce under U.S. note 6 to subchapter X of chapter 98 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States relating to importation of educational or scientific instruments and apparatus; (H) final orders or decisions of the Merit Systems Protection Board and certain arbitrators, 5 U.S.C. §7703; (I) final decisions of the General Accounting Office Personnel Appeals Board, 31 U.S.C. §755; (J) final decisions of all agency Boards of Contract Appeals, 41 U.S.C. §607(g); (K) final decisions of the Patent and Trademark Office tribunals on patent applications and interferences, trademark applications and interferences, cancellations, concurrent use proceedings, and oppositions, 35 U.S.C. §142, 15 U.S.C. §1071, 37 CFR §§1.304, 2.145; (L) appeals under section 71 of the Plant Variety Protection Act of 1970, 7 U.S.C. §2461; (M) certain actions of the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, 38 U.S.C. §502; (N) certain final orders of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission relating to certain Presidential appointees, 2 U.S.C. §1219(a)(3) and 28 U.S.C. §2344; (O) final decisions of the Office of Personnel Management under 5 U.S.C. §8902a(g)(2); (P) certain actions of the Board of Directors of the Office of Compliance of the U.S. Congress under 2 U.S.C. §1407(a); and (Q) final decisions of certain agencies pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1296.

The Federal Circuit also has exclusive jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1292(c) of: (1) appealable interlocutory orders or decrees in cases where the court would otherwise have jurisdiction over an appeal; and (2) appeals from judgments in civil actions for patent infringement otherwise appealable to the court and final except for accounting. Under the provisions of 28 U.S.C. §1292(d), the court has: (1) exclusive jurisdiction of appeals from interlocutory orders granting or denying, in whole or in part, a motion to transfer an action to the Court of Federal Claims; and (2) may, in its discretion, permit an appeal from an interlocutory order of a judge who certifies that there is a controlling question of law and a substantial ground for difference of opinion thereon, and that an immediate appeal may materially advance the ultimate termination of the litigation. Pursuant to 38 U.S.C. §7292(b)(1), the court has exclusive jurisdiction of certain interlocutory orders of the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.

Legislation having an impact on the Federal Circuit is contained in P.L. 105–339 (51021) October 31, 1998, Veterans Employment Opportunities Act of 1998, which provides a remedy through the Merit Systems Protection Board for those seeking review of the application of veterans preference rules to applicants for Federal employment.

The Judiciary Information Technology Fund provides the judiciary with a funds management tool which allows more effective and efficient planning, budgeting, and use of funds for information technology activities. The Fund was authorized "without fiscal year limitation," which allows the judiciary to carry forward funds for projects that incur obligations over multiple years. The Fund makes it possible to implement the Long Range Plan for Information Technology in the Federal Judiciary and to manage the information technology program over a multi-year planning cycle while maximizing efficiencies and benefits. The Fund is financed through deposits and transfers from appropriations, reimbursements, user fees, and the sale of surplus equipment.
