The General Services Administration's Board of Contract Appeals (GSBCA) is a significant venue for Federal Automated Data Processing Equipment (ADPE) protests. Since the GSBCA was granted jurisdiction over Brooks Act ADPE procurements in 1985, over 1,200 decisions have been rendered. Developing lessons learned from these protest decisions will benefit Federal ADPE managers by increasing awareness of the protest process. The highly complex Federal ADPE acquisition process is governed by numerous statutes and regulations. This study also discusses the pertinent statutory background of the protest process, as well as the protest process itself General lessons learned are presented in areas such as acquisition phases most likely to sustain protests and the amount of processing time expected for protest actions. Specific lessons learned pertaining to GSBCA jurisdiction, timeliness of protests, and evaluation/ selection of offers are also presented. The study is intended to serve as a sound overview of the protest process, its mechanics, and lessons learned form over 200 significant GSBCA decisions. The primer is intended to serve as an introductory document for the new Federal ADPE manager. ADPE Protests, Protests, GSBCA, Information systems, ADPE Procurement
