Report: FBI Begins $100M Data Center Project in Idaho

The FBI has broken ground on the bureau’s $100 million project to establish a data center in Pocatello, Idaho, FCW reported Friday.

Construction of the 100,000-square-foot building is part of a broader multiyear effort to consolidate multiple FBI data management operations, information technology systems and services.

The data consolidation program seeks to help Justice Department components manage their cybersecurity posture as well as collaborate and exchange information.

DOJ and FBI aim to merge more than 100 data centers into three facilities located at Pocatello, Washington and Clarksburg in West Virginia.
