2014 Budget Proposal Seeks $2.1 Billion for Construction Projects
April 10, 2013
The White House is seeking more than $2.1 billion in 2014 for new construction, renovations and property purchases for non-Defense agencies.
More than $816 million would be slated for new construction while about $1.3 billion would be spent on renovation and repairs to existing buildings. The funds are proposed for the General Services Administration, which oversees construction and renovation projects for non-Defense agencies.
The increases would be far more than the $56 million for new construction and $280 million in renovations that GSA received in each of fiscal 2012 and 2013.
GSA would receive $261 million to continue the long-delayed headquarters complex for the Department of Homeland Security in Southeast Washington and more than $108 million to build a records complex for the FBI in Winchester, Va.
