U.S. General Services Administration Announces New Lease Agreement for the Customs and Border Protection Office of Information and Technology

New lease will consolidate 12 CBP OIT leases in 11 locations

Washington, D.C. - - (May 10, 2018) - - The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) today announced a new lease agreement for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Information and Technology (OIT), as well as several component offices of the Office of Trade, U.S. Border Patrol, and Laboratory and Scientific Services Directorate.

Under the new lease agreement, CBP OIT will consolidate 12 CBP OIT related leases from 11 separate locations into one facility. The new headquarters will occupy 444,595 rentable square feet (RSF) at 22001 Loudoun County Parkway in Ashburn, Virginia. The lease is for a firm term of 15 years.

"GSA is pleased to provide the CBP OIT with a consolidated headquarters location that will meet its long term needs,” said PBS Director of Portfolio Management & Real Estate, Chris Wisner. “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.”

CBP OIT is reducing its real estate footprint by over 191,000 RSF. In addition to the savings associated with a smaller footprint, the federal government will reduce expenses associated with having multiple leased locations.
