Reports: GSA to Announce FBI Headquarters Location, Developer in March

fbi-headquartersThe General Services Administration has pushed back to March 2017 the selection of the location and developer of the new FBI headquarters, the Washington Post reported Monday.

Jonathan O’Connell writes GSA considers Landover and Greenbelt in Maryland as well as Springfield in Virginia candidate sites for the bureau’s future 2.1 million-square-foot facility.

GSA was originally set to announce its decision in December, according to a report by Michael O’Connell for Federal News Radio.

O’Connell reports that the FBI and GSA plan to use the proceeds from the sale of the J. Edgar Hoover building in Washington and additional appropriations to fund the headquarters project.

President Barack Obama’s budget proposal for fiscal 2017 seeks to allocate $1.4 billion in funds for the project, according to the report.

Norman Dong, public building service commissioner at GSA, told Federal News Radio in March that GSA already secured $390 million in funds for the new FBI facility that Congress approved as part of the fiscal 2016 spending bill.
