WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Ranking Member of the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, released the following statement on the General Services Administration (GSA) report to the EPW Committee on Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) consolidation.
“I am extremely disappointed in GSA’s report to the Environment and Public Works Committee on the future consolidation of the FBI. The GSA proposal makes little sense, especially given the clear-cut requirements both the FBI and GSA have laid out for more than a decade for a fully consolidated, secure FBI campus. To put forward a proposal that has a higher cost for less consolidation and is inconsistent with congressional authorization is bizarre – perhaps more bizarre than GSA’s original decision to cancel the previous procurement. It is incomprehensible how the agency came to this decision.”
