DDI- ~~~ g~/.` ~u~ ,ses MEMORANDUM FOR: Deputy Director for Administration FROM Robert M. Gates Deputy Director for Intelligence SUBJECT Space REFERENCE: Your Memo dated 23 June 83, same subject 1. I appreciate the opportunity to review the issue of space and welcome any options that may prove helpful in solving this problem. In reviewing your memorandum, it would perhaps be simpler to comment on the various points in order of occurrence. 2. The DI allocation of Headquarters space being vacated (43,205 sq. ft.) does not take into account an agreement made some weeks ago, prior to your memoradum, concerning 6C43 Headquarters between Mr. John Stein and myself. John agreed that the current occupants of 6C43 Headquarters (TTAC/OSWR) would remain in place. No other space was traded or affected by the 6C43 agreement. Therefore, the reallocation of ref. para. 4 should reflect an additional 2,626 sq. ft. of space for OSWR on the 6th floor for a new total of 45,833 sq. ft. 3. Attachment A, of your memorandum, appears to have omitted several of our projected requirements submitted originally on 17 November 82. Our EURA office's requirement for 2,250 sq. ft. and understatement of OGI's original requirement by 7,759 sq. ft. should raise the total DI requirement by approximately 10,019 sq. ft. for a total of 58,913 sq. ft. You note in para. 5 that 3,170 sq. ft. of our projected requirement has been satisified. This is a matter of perception since SOVA gave up 44,968 sq. ft.~ and received 40,035 sq. ft. in Headquarters with 3,170 sq. ft. o ea quarters space going to other DI offices. The net difference to the DI is a loss of 1,763 sq. ft. of space (44,968 -43,205 = 1,763). 4. I agree with your paragraph 8 assumptions with the exception of the following: A. As previously noted, assumption (a) does not credit the DI with the 6C43 Hqs. 2,628 sq. ft. of space given to us by the DDO. B. The final assumption (g) does not take into consideration our earlier space requirements which were based on a current space squeeze and went on to factor in 1983 and 1984 growth. Your assumption begins with an approach to the space requirement based only on the 1984 growth and assumes there were no previous problems which is not the case. SECRET Approved For Release 2008/06/05: CIA-RDP85B01152R000700870012-5 Approved For Release 2008/06/05: CIA-RDP85B01152R000700870012-5 ? SUBJECT: Space 5. Since we are not in complete agreement on the assumptions, your proposed courses of action, or options, are somewhat more difficult to address . Option A -- Except as reflected below in comments on Options A and B, the absorption of position growth in present space (after SOVA's return) is our only real choice. Option B -- I have identified a portion of the Analytic Methods Branch, Analytic upport Group/DDI as candidates for a portion of the Key Building space. We are holding a more detailed review prior to offering further candidates for the Key Building space and will advise you of our findings. Option C -- See Option A. The return of SOVA marks the DCI's (and Agency senior management's) recognition that having a DI production or support office outside of Headquarters imposes too high a cost on our substantive work. While we will work on trying to identify subordinate units that might be considered for relocation until completion of the new building, I do not intend to move an entire office. We will absorb FY 84 growth in present space if necessary to avoid this. 6. While I appreciate the difficult, controversial nature of the space problem as one with no easy solution, I would be remiss not to insist on proper space to carry out the DI's mission. The level of effort and dedication of our employees demand it. We will continue to work closely with you toward this common goal. obert M.
