FBI Headquarters Consolidation Would Cut Leasing by $44M Annually
March 13, 2013
The FBI would save $44 million in leasing costs annually by consolidating its offices at a new headquarters, according to a top agency official.
About 5,000 FBI employees work in 20 leased spaces across the Washington area, Kevin Perkins, associate deputy director at the FBI, told lawmakers at a House subcommittee hearing Wednesday. Another 5,000 work at the headquarters building, which is old, inefficient and not able to meet basic requirements such as security, he said.
“The dispersal of employees has created significant challenges in facilitating organizational change, sharing information and in administrative functions,” Perkins said.
