GSA Cites Appropriations Behind FBI HQ Location Announcement Delay

The General Services Administration has postponed the announcement of its selected location for the new FBI headquarters until it secures congressional funding to support the $1 billion project, Federal News Radio reported Friday.

Meredith Somers writes GSA was originally scheduled to announce its chosen site for the FBI HQ consolidation project in December but pushed back its decision to March.

“GSA and FBI have worked diligently since the fall issuance of the revised schedule,” said a spokeswoman for GSA.

“Appropriations are necessary in order for us to make an announcement and move forward with the next critical steps under the [National Environmental Policy Act] NEPA process and ultimately make an award.”

GSA and FBI consider Landover and Greenbelt Metro in Maryland and a warehouse complex in Springfield, Virginia, as candidate sites for the bureau’s new facility, according to the report.

The delay in the announcement comes nearly two months after GSA issued a request for proposals for the second phase of the FBI HQ construction project.
