The FBI could save $44 million per year if it consolidates its 21 headquarters locations into a single 2.1-million-square-foot facility, a top agency official told lawmakers Wednesday.

Kevin Perkins, FBI associate deputy director, told the House committee overseeing federal buildings the agency leases many of those locations, the Washington Post reports.

According to Federal Times, Perkins said nearly 5,000 bureau employees work in 20 leased buildings throughout the Washington region and another 5,000 work at the agency’s current Hoover Building headquarters.

“The dispersal of employees has created significant challenges in facilitating organizational change, sharing information and in administrative functions,” Perkins said, Federal Times reports.

Andy Medici writes the General Services Administration has received 35 responses to its request for proposals on ideas for how to move the FBI and use the Hoover Building space.
