The General Services Administration announced that it has purchased a site in Frederick County, Va., as the home for the FBI’s new Central Records Complex. GSA purchased the 59-acre for $4.75 million.
“The centralization of FBI records consolidates records from 265 current locations into a single facility,” said Joanna Rosato, regional commissioner of GSA’s Public Buildings Service in the Mid-Atlantic Region. "The CRC will provide the infrastructure and technology for the FBI to continue to digitize records on demand."
The new facility to be constructed on the site will be approximately 256,000 gross square feet in area, according to GSA, and will include a secure perimeter, visitor screening center and truck screening facility, guard booth, and surface parking lot. GSA said more than 440 employees will work at the complex.
The new secured facility, which will be National Archives and Records Administration-compliant, will include environmentally conditioned, fire-protected space for records storage, as well as material handling and operational support areas, GSA said.
