  FEL-THz plays an important role in THz science and technology research, for high power output and tunable wavelength, which is indispensable to material, biology, medical research. Now, the construction is underway at China Academy of Engineering Physics (CAEP) on high-average-power FEL THz source, and the demonstration of stable, reliable, high brightness, high power electron source operation is one of key issues. The components of the system were constructed and the performance tests are still on. The lifetime of the Negative Electron Affinity (NEA) surface is about 40 hours, which is limitied mainly by vacuum. Up to now, the gun can supply 5mA beam current and has been employed for preliminary experiments. In this paper, the design considerations and present status are given.
