General Services Administration selects site for Federal Bureau of Investigations Central Records Complex in Frederick County, VA

June 24, 2016

Philadelphia - The General Services Administration (GSA) Mid-Atlantic Region has purchased a site in Frederick County, VA, to construct the FBI’s new Central Records Complex.

This new facility will streamline the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s worldwide records management. “The centralization of FBI records consolidates records from 265 current locations into a single facility,” said Joanna Rosato, Regional Commissioner of GSA’s Public Buildings Service in the Mid-Atlantic Region, "the CRC will provide the infrastructure and technology for the FBI to continue to digitize records on demand."

The site is being purchased for $4.75 million, which includes proffered road construction by the owner to create a new Independence Drive to access the site. The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) compliant secured facility complete with environmentally conditioned, fire-protected space will provide records storage combined with material handling and operational support areas. The 59 acre site will support construction of approximately 256,000 Gross Square Feet facility, including a secure perimeter, visitor screening center and truck screening facility, guard booth, and surface parking lot. Over 440 employees will work at this facility.
