Abstract : Automatic Data Processing Equipment (ADPE) procurement by federal agencies is governed by an interlocking network of policies and directives issued by federal agencies, the Department of Defense (DOD), the Department of the Navy (DON), and local commands. This thesis is an attempt to collate all applicable directives concerning ADPE procurement and provide an easily read step by step guide. The handbook leads the reader through naval policies and directives, organized according to threshold prices for the desired acquisition. The impact of the general Services Administration (GSA), its policies and procedures are clearly indicated to allow the user to disregard these portions in the event congressional deliberation determines that DOD is not subject to the provisions of PL 89-306, Brooks Bill. Appendices include sample documentation; addresses; and applicable supporting documents. (Author)
