Increased Funding for Public Buildings in 2014

 
Government and public buildings will receive much needed repairs.

After years of insufficient funding, U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA), portfolio of facilities will be receiving some much needed attention as part of the Fiscal Year 2014 Consolidated Appropriations Act.

Over 9,000 facilities will receive $1 billion in repairs and maintenance. The legislation also funds several construction projects. One of those projects includes the consolidation of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) at the St. Elizabeth’s campus in Washington, DC. With $155 million investment in the St. Elizabeth’s campus, GSA will continue to work to bring DHS into a single campus, which will save on leased space and enhance staff collaboration.

With the passage of the legislation, GSA’s request for a number of Land Port of Entry projects is fully funded. GSA will invest $295 million in critical border crossing and inspection modernization projects that will help expand trade and enhance border security.

Making Federal Real Estate Smaller and More Efficient

The legislation includes $70 million to further GSA’s efforts to consolidate agencies within existing federally owned space. GSA’s consolidation program will save taxpayer dollars by reducing agency dependence on leased space, increase energy and water conservation, and reduce the total amount of space occupied by the government.
