Abstract : This thesis is a study of the regulations and directives that apply to the acquisition of Automated Data Processing systems for the United States Coast Guard. The original standard terminal acquisition for the Coast Guard in 1981 was intended to provide the Coast Guard with state of the art microcomputer capabilities. It was also an attempt at standardization of the original standard terminal acquisition process with the current applicable guidelines and regulations will provide a number of 'lessons learned' as well as a basic framework for similar acquisitions in the future.
