Report: GSA Decides to End FBI HQ Search

The General Services Administration will notify industry on Tuesday regarding its decision to call off the agency’s search for a new FBI headquarters, the Washington Post reported Monday.

The cancellation came four months after GSA postponed the announcement of its selected site for the new FBI building until it secures congressional funds and less than a month after House appropriators revoked the proposed $200 million in funds for the project.

Some government officials said the lack of permanent administrators at GSA and FBI could have thwarted efforts to secure funds for the new headquarters, the report noted.

FBI and GSA considered Springfield, Virginia, as well as Landover and Greenbelt in Maryland as candidate sites for the bureau’s new facility.
