SUCHANEK ANNOUNCES RESIGNATION FROM GSA CONTRACT APPEALS BOARD

 SUCHANEK ANNOUNCES RESIGNATION FROM GSA CONTRACT APPEALS BOARD
 WASHINGTON, May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Leonard J. Suchanek, chief judge and chairman of the General Services Administration Board of Contract Appeals, today announced his resignation from the board effective Sept. 6, 1992, in order to pursue opportunities in the private sector. Suchanek has served as chairman of the board for nearly 14 years.
 Upon accepting Suchanek's resignation, Administrator Richard G. Austin of the U.S. General Services Administration said: "Judge Suchanek has played a leading role in achieving for the board a national reputation for fairness and competence that reflects favorably upon GSA, as well as a standing among tribunals that has drawn the attention of academicians, economists and legal scholars throughout the world. We appreciate his years of service and wish him continued success."
 The GSA Board of Contract Appeals adjudicates claims by and against the General Services Administration, the Departments of Treasury, Education and Commerce and many agencies and commissions. During Suchanek's tenure, the board's jurisdiction was enlarged to include authority to review protests concerning procurement decisions in the award of automatic data processing resources. This required implementation of a new unique protest resolution process unprecedented for an executive branch tribunal.
 Suchanek's tenure as chairman includes a number of accomplishments, among those are the adoption of new rules of procedure, the implementation of information technology resources and the application of innovative approaches and techniques to resolve protests.
 Austin said no replacement for the judge has been chosen but that a selection process will begin in the near future so that there will be a smooth transition in the operation of the Board of Contract Appeals.
