Approved For Release 2000/08/24: CIA-RDP74-00005R000100070030-4 Engineer SUBJECT : Moveable Shelving Project 1. The following paragraph is extracted from my monthly activity report to the Claief, Records Administration Branch at Headquarters: The second increment of space was turned over to the con- tractor on 6 May. (Area #' to F on plan) Concrete was poured in the first increment on 10, 11 and 12 tda / . (Area P to F on plan) Electricians removed the existing light fixtures and re- placed them with the new type in the first increment except for problem areas. Ti l e was laid in parts of the first increment on 25 May. On 24 and 25 May representatives from the 25X1A5a1 Alarm Co. relocated the control boxes, which were going to interfere with the Moveable 13elving. Also during ,' , the first carriages were put on the rail e, andRecords Center shelves were put on the carriages. It would seem from the above that there was tremendous progress during Mau; however, there were prob- leme at every turn. The concrete is uneven and rough, the tile did not stick, the edges of the concrete break, the concrete did not bond to the original floor, air ducts were in the way of the new light fixtures and vinyl edging strip did not work. In addition to the physical problems, there has been a problem with the contractor bringing uncleared empioyees to work on the pro- ject. The contractor is required by the specifications to submit a orm supplied by the government on each of his employees to the 25X1C4a who in turn submits the forms to=Security to have a Security check done. We worked out a system with. the Security officer whereby he would furnish us a list of the clears contrac- tor personnel, and we would only admit those cleared; however, the contractor on several occasions brow ht uncleared personnel to the job. We referred the matter to the &Securit ~ officer who each time acMtted the employee. 25X1A6a 25X1A6a 25X1A6a Approved For Release 2000/08/24: CIA-RDP74-00005R000100070030-4 Approved For Release 2000/08/24: CIA-RDP74-00005R00010GA70030-4 2.
