President Barack Obama has included nearly $1.4 billion in funds for various federal building projects of the General Services Administration in his fiscal 2017 budget proposal.
“The President’s budget includes investments necessary to further strengthen our nation’s real estate portfolio while promoting development in communities across the country,” GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth said Tuesday.
Obama allocates $759 million for the construction of a consolidated FBI headquarters and $267 million to build a new Federal Emergency Management Agency building at St. Elizabeth’s campus in Washington.
More than $91 million is allocated for two new GSA facilities in Detroit, Michigan, and another $248 million would go toward modernizing a Customs and Border Protection agency-run port of entry facility in Calexico, California.
GSA said Obama’s budget plan also includes funding for the agency’s technology and shared services.
