President Barack Obama has outlined several construction and repair projects in his fiscal 2016 budget proposal in a move to modernize U.S. public buildings.

The budget request also contains a provision to finance the federal buildings fund program for the fiscal year 2017, the General Services Administration said Monday.

“Advanced funding for the Federal Buildings program will give GSA the ability to plan long-term, providing certainty to communities across the country with pending investment needs,” said Dan Tangherlini, GSA administrator.

Obama called for $191 million in funding to modernize land ports in New Mexico and New York, $200 million to consolidate agencies within government-owned and leased space, and $60 million to upgrade security and safety systems.

The budget plan also proposes $62 million for the Office of Government-wide Policy to develop policies and tools, and $58 million in funding for the Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies.
