The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), has prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to analyze the potential impacts from the proposed 2018 Master Plan for the consolidation of the FDA Headquarters at the Federal Research Center (FRC) at White Oak, located in Silver Spring, Maryland. The Final EIS has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR 1500-1508).

The purpose of the Master Plan is to provide a framework for development at the FRC to accommodate approximately 18,000 FDA employees and support staff. The Master Plan is needed to continue to support the FDA Headquarters consolidation at the FRC and provide the necessary office space to conduct the complex and comprehensive FDA reviews mandated by Congress.

The Final EIS reviews the impacts and benefits of the action alternatives and the No Action Alternative on the human environment. The alternatives evaluated can be found in Section 2.0, Alternatives Development. GSA has identified Alternative C as the Preferred Alternative. The “Preferred Alternative” is the alternative which GSA believes would best meet the purpose and need by continuing to support the FDA Headquarters’ consolidation at the FRC.
