The U.S. Coast Guard has moved into its new headquarters in Washington, DC Monday, as part of the first phase of the Department of Homeland Security‘s headquarters consolidation plan, Fierce Government IT reports Wednesday.
Zach Rausnitz writes that the first phase also included a 2,000-car parking garage and perimeter security.
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano attended the ceremonial ribbon cutting event at the 1.2 million square foot Coast Guard headquarters.
The second phase of the DHS headquarters consolidation plan, which includes space provision for the Office of the Secretary and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, will begin in fiscal 2014 until fiscal 2023.
Headquarters consolidation for the Transportation Security Administration, Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement in fiscal 2021 will be the DHS project’s third and final phase.
