GSA to Allot $35M From Spending Bill For Civilian Cyber Campus

GSAThe General Services Administration will receive $35 million through the recently passed omnibus spending bill to fund the agency’s plan to open a civilian cyber campus in Washington, the Washington Business Journal reported Dec. 10.

Michael Neibauer writes that the campus will operate separately from military counterpart U.S. Cyber Command and house civilian federal employees and contractors who support cybersecurity operations.

The report said the project’s goal is to consolidate the federal government’s cyber functions and replace current lease agreements with private companies.

GSA’s original prospectus on the campus also states the benefits of bolstering communications, organizational synergies, coordination, and operational effectiveness and efficiencies, Neibauer reports.

The Department of Homeland Security, FBI, Office of Intelligence and Analysis and U.S. Secret Service are involved in the project.
