A Message From GSA


As part of our efforts to maintain an ongoing dialogue with you, we would like to take the mid-point of 2014 as an opportunity to share our progress so far this year and where we’re headed for 2015.
 
Congress allocated $9.6 billion to GSA in 2014, $1.65 billion of which is in support of our capital projects. We have been putting that to good use, with funding obligated for the following:
  1. $69,762,000 - Herbert C. Hoover Building, Washington, DC
  2. $43,687,000 - Department of Interior Modernization (Phase 6)
  3. $26,072,000 - Lafayette Building, Washington, DC
  4. $2,056,000 - Charles F. Prevedel Federal Building in Overland, MO
  5. $650,000 - Denver Federal Center Remediation, Lakewood, CO
  6. $478,000 - Bean Federal Center, Indianapolis, IN
  7. $377,000 - Richard C. Lee Courthouse, New Haven, CT
  8. $344,000 - Federal Building in Little Rock, AR
Additionally, over $7 million has been invested this year on everything from a new cooling tower at the Robert A. Young Federal Building in St. Louis to a new fire alarm system at the Gus J. Solomon Courthouse in Portland, Oregon.
 
Earlier this year, the President’s budget request for FY2015 included more than $10 billion which includes much needed infrastructure and new construction in every region in the country. In addition to preserving full funding for the Federal Buildings Fund, highlighted requests include:
  • More than $1 billion to invest in federal buildings that need major renovations and basic repairs and renovations.
  • $100 million to further GSA’s efforts to consolidate agencies within existing federally owned space
  • $100 million to improve safety systems, meet security requirements, cut energy costs, and reduce water usage in buildings across the country.
  • The Enterprise Computing Center in Detroit, MI - $74.9 million: The requested funding would allow GSA to purchase the buildings for $1, then renovate the buildings and consolidate Federal agencies into this location.
  • The Alexandria Bay, NY Land Port of Entry Phase I - $105 million: This request is for design and construction services on the first phase of a project that will replace the existing land port of entry.
  • San Ysidro Land Port of Entry Phase II in San Diego, CA - $216.8 million: GSA is requesting funding to finalize expansion of the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry, the busiest land port of entry in the Western Hemisphere.
  • The Calexico West Land Port of Entry Phase I in Calexico, CA - $98 million: GSA’s budget request would fund a project that will increase operation space, reduce traffic congestion, and create a safe environment for port employees and visitors.
  • The Dept. of Homeland Security Consolidation at St. Elizabeths in Washington, DC - $250.5 million: These funds will move the next phase of the DHS Headquarters consolidation project forward.
  • The Dept. of Commerce Headquarters renovations at the Herbert C. Hoover Federal Building (Phase V) in Washington, DC - $150.9 million: These funds would allow GSA to move the next phase of the Dept. of Commerce’s headquarters renovation forward.
We hope this information is useful to you and look forward to keeping you updated about our real estate and infrastructure investments in the future.
