Approved For Release 2008/06/05: CIA-RDP85B01152R000700870008-0 ?? ?4 2 5 JUL 1983 ME. ANIMN FOR: Director of Central Intelligence VLA: Deputy Director of Central Intelligence Executive Director Fru is Harry E. `Fitzwater Deputy Director for Administration SUBJECT: Space 83-1604/7 the upgrading of capabilities of the Agency through increased personnel growth and additional equipment does not come without a significant cost increase. Of particular significance is the need for space to house the additional personnel and equ i ient that are programmed in the FY- 84 budget. 2: You will recall that in December 1982, we obtained reprogram- ing g-approval of $6.O :million from Congress to fund the acquisition of office space totaling 150,000 sc,. ft. that you had previously approyed under your Section 8 authorities.... is wma t of This space was. to provide for Agency . r~:Jt ire i=Y-32_: and. FY-83 have since acquired and occupied approximately 27,000 sq. ft. 25X1 and 1 eased ZViith approximately 112.000 sa. t _ Both 25X1 of these buildings are in It took 25X1 five -months to reconfigure will 25X1 take approximately 12 months from acquisition to occupancy. These delays are due to the time necessary to make necessary security and co*_:vmunications modifications. 3. As is obvious, a great deal of time is consumed in locating, leasing, and adapting a building suitable to our needs. It will be near_the end of the first quarter of FY-84 before we can adequately accommodate our FY-83 growth, which up until then will be housed in cramped, inadequate space. 4. Since we are anticipating a larger rate of growth in FY-84, 1 believe we must undertake action now,, to acquire the necessary additional space. The SSCI, in approving the $6.0 million reprogram-,rd-ng, lL^ited our space acquisition to 150,000 sq. ft. in FY-83. Nevertheless, I do not believe we would violate this ca `eat if we were to begin locating the necessary space for our FY-84 grow,, th and securing it with an option(s) to lease after 30 September 1983. This action would peimit us to occupy the space at a minim of two months earlier. Further, the leasing market currently is soft in the Metro] olitan Washington Area ([ A) , providing a number of places to select and owners who are more receptive to our terns and conditions. 5. In anticipating our growth for FY-84 in the M,:_1, we have made certain assumptions on the numbers of additional positions Congress may authorize and the special space needs to acco_modate additional machines and equipment. 'These All portions classified SECRET Approved For Release 2008/06/05: CIA-RDP85B01152R000700870008-0 s Approved For Release 2008/06/05: CIA-RDP85BO1152R000700870008-0 SUBJECT: Space assumptions have been discussed with the other Deputy Directors and I have their estimated space requirements based on possible growth coupled with current space shortages. The following factors were used in camputing our estimated FY-84 space needs: Requested FY-84 Probable Congressional NTew Total Increases Reduction Adjusted Increase 6.. In the case of the DDO and DDI, both have requested their space be made available in Headquarters- S,"ith the forthcoming -Hove of the Office of Personnel., Office of Security, and Of ice of the General Counse and the Office of the Inspector General and Office o Legislative Liaison to Rosslyn, the only remaining occupants of the Headquarters building other than the Directorate of Opera ions and the Directorate of Intelligence, are the Comnm icatiors Signal Center, the Data Processing Computer Center, the Medical reception area, and the c ices of the DCI, DDCI, EXDIR, DDs and. their immediate staffs. The cost of relocating the Signal or Computer Centers to leased space -is prohibitive, and under no circumstances would I recormrend such an action. While the Medical reception area could be relocated, it too would be at a substantial, cost in terms of special modifications for laboratories, examining rooms, x-ray facilities, etc. Then faced with these circutlstances, the DDO agreed to relocate people who currently occupy approximately 15,000 sq. ft. to suitable leased space and to absorb their total expansion within their existing space. 7. The DDT feels very strongly that having a DI production or support office outside of the Headquarters building imposes too high a cost on their substantive work. He has identified a small analytical group who may be 25X1 relocated, and is continuing to look at similar functions. However, this would represent only a negligible amount when comp ared to the 59,000 sq. ft. requested for expansion. The DI cannot continue to absorb growth within its existing holdings until the new Headquarters building is available for occupancy in 1987, and it is inevitable that an element of the DI must be identified and relocated. Although such relocation-may not total 59,000 sq. ft_, it will amount to a substantial portion of it. Or.

On the other hand, the DA and DST do not have a problem in locating in externally leased space. These two Directorates also have the largest growth in terms of personnel, and the DA represents the principal user of special or non-office space. The DS&T total needs are approximately 28,135 sq. ft. The DA requirements, after a substantial and arbitrary reduction, total approximately 33,000 sq. ft. of office space and 45,000 sq. ft. of special purpose or non-office space. 9. -In sumnnary, I believe the minimum amount of space that we must lease to accort odate our FY-84 growth is approximately 180,000 sq. ft., of which approximately 45,000 sq. ft.-would be configured for machine use. I also foresee this as-the. last amount of space we should be leasing in the M WA pending completion of the new Headquarters building. It is generally not feasible to lease for less than five years and any shorter time is too costly in terms of the costs of. special modifications. we customarily make to leased property for. security and corm- mications. Accordingly, I propose to establish a moratorium -. on the acquisition of additional space in the MF -other than for unforeseen operational considerations. 10. in view of the, above, and as mentioned in-paragraph 4. above, approval is -requested to conduct a _._ e of _. u' d' Q _ _. y or. soon to... be, available - for .-1-ease along the 25X1 and to execute options, -1f necessary, to lease approximately 180,000 sq. ft. after 1 October 1983. While e= ost: of such--options are-not Imoti~in,. it is=-,.expected that such-will not exceed two months -rep or. $30-0,-0O.0. -If you agree :pith- this proposal-, u: will negotiate. to apply these costs to actual rent when the space is occupied. 11. Further, approval is requested for the Director of Logistics to use the. Agency's leasing authority under Section 8 to acquire such space directly, rather than -use GSA as our agents Our historical experience with GSA indicates that - they cannot be responsive to. our time requirements. 12. Upon your approval of the recommendations in paragraphs 10. and Il. above, we intend to inform., the SSCI and.HPSCI.of our proposed plan and seek their concurrence- E::rr1 E. Fitrv;at01 Harry E.
