GSA Purchases Frederick County, VA Site for FBI Central Records Complex

recordThe U.S. General Services Administration has purchased 59 acres of land in Winchester and Frederick County, Virginia for $4.75 million to house the FBI‘s future Central Records Complex as the bureau seeks to comply with the National Archives‘ record storage requirements.

GSA aims to help the FBI consolidate its records from 265 current locations and continue efforts to digitize them into an on-demand searchable form, the FBI said Friday.

The FBI says it digitizes at least 20 million pages per year to make them searchable and CRC will house both infrastructure and technology for the bureau to carry out the digitization effort.

CRC’s main facility will span approximately 256,000 gross square feet with a secure perimeter, visitor and truck screening facility, guard booth and surface parking lot.
