The Customs and Border Protection‘s Office of Information of Technology will move to consolidate its 11 separate locations into one facility through a 15-year lease agreement signed by the General Services Administration.
CBP OIT will occupy a 444,595-rentable-square-foot office space at 22001 Loudoun County Parkway in Ashburn, Va., GSA said Thursday.
The facility will also house CBP’s Office of Trade, Border Patrol and Laboratory and Scientific Services Directorate.
“The new lease will reduce its footprint, improve the utilization rate, and save taxpayers approximately $8 million in annual leased cost avoidance versus non-consolidation,” said Chris Wisner, director of portfolio management and real estate at GSA’s Public Buildings Service.
CBP aims to reduce real estate footprint of its IT operations by more than 191,000 RSF.
