The Customs and Border Protection‘s Office of Information of Technology will move to consolidate its 11Â separate locations into one facility through a 15-year lease agreement signed by the General Services Administration.
CBP OIT will occupy aÂ 444,595-rentable-square-foot office space at 22001 Loudoun County Parkway inÂ Ashburn, Va., GSA said Thursday.
The facility will also houseÂ 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,” saidÂ Chris Wisner, director of portfolio management and real estate at GSA’s Public Buildings Service.
CBPÂ aims to reduce real estate footprint of its IT operations by more than 191,000 RSF.
