Fitzwater Deputy Director for Administration ~~1! lie ~s-~ SUBJECT: Additional Space for Intelligence Community Staff 1. I bring the attached to your attention because of the confusion it has caused within our Agency and the General Services Administration (GSA). This is the second incident where. organizations associated with CIA have ignored regulations and procedures by attempting to lease real estate outside established channels. In both cases, GSA, as ~~ell as the DDA, has been very concerned by these actions. 2. tiYe are fully aware of the Intelligence Community Staff's requirements and have been trying to meet them in a reasonable manner. I have taken a personal interest in trying to accommodate your require- ments but find we are shooting at a moving target. Nothing i~~e propose seems to be adequate. I~Tevertheless, we are continuing to work with your support people to try and work out a reasonable solution. I do believe that there must be some give on both sides since we are strapped for solutions due to lack of funds and congressional restrictions on leasing any more real estate in FY'83.
