FBI Eyes Cyber Campus in Washington D.C. Suburbs

1 min read

The FBI said it considers establishing a consolidated cyber campus in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., to support its mission and workforce, the Washington Business Journal reported Tuesday.

The bureau said in a statement Tuesday that the FBI headquarters must remain in the downtown D.C. area, citing its proximity to the Department of Justice’s leadership, agency components and the public.

The General Services Administration said it would look for a site to build a federally owned facility in the suburbs to accommodate at least 7,500 employees and maintain a D.C. office for 750 personnel to support FBI’s daily engagements with DOJ, Congress and the White House.

A new search for a new FBI headquarters may be imminent as Congress and the Biden administration recognize the need for a facility to house the bureau’s workforce through the approved budget for fiscal year 2022 and FY 2023 budget request, according to the report.
