IW:istin , facilities; A_crea~3e - The Agency cor.~trolled property at Langley consists of approximately 170 acxe:s. In addition, the Agency hac: advised GSA/~PBS that it would like "first rei'u.sal" on 32.22 s.cres known as the "Scattergood- Thorne" property, if the Bureau of Public Roads (the present assignee) desires to release it. The Bureau of Public Roads property, generally to the west of the Agency property contains 361.5 acres. Buildings - The~Headquarters Building contain sq. ft. ross of floor space. 0 11floornspace.a Total grossispace contains 25X9 in the b sq. ft. The Bureau of Public Ros,ds property has two buildings con- taining a total of approxianatel~t 68,000 gross sq. ft. Sdhile the Agency site is adequately developed, including roads, walks, utilities, parking cafeteria service, etc., there 25X1X3 is no available space, in the present buildings, to accommodate the 2. Construction Requirements: utilization of the headquarters site, or the adjacent Bureau of Public Roads site, would require extensive construction activity. The constxRZCtion might be done by: a. Government funding through Gam, or possibly b. alease-purchase arrangement with a private contractor (i.e., turn-ltey) Another possibility would be to relocate Agency components presently at Langley to leased space in other buildings away from the Headquarters site. In that event, extensive alteration work to the existing building would be requixed~ as would modification z~7ork to the leased space. A "checkerboard" program would be required to effect the necessary moves, as would funds for leasing and modification of the outside space.? 3. Considerations: a. Depending upon final site selection, it wilh.:be necessary to construct additional parls:ing, access roads, and wants .

Certain utilities systems need extension, expansion, or provision made in additional construction for neia, in- dependent systems, such as primary and back-up power distri- bution, a.ir-conditioning (chilled water system, water dis- tribution, steam distribution, telephone facilities, sewage collection and pumping, ~tnd classified waste disposal. ~+. Ad_vanta~es; There axe a number of advantages to locating this facility at Headquarters; a. Such action would compliment the Agency goal of consolidation of all feasible elements at Langley, which would lead to more efficient mexiagement. b. Better security would be achieved c. Langley is easily accessible by public and private transportation via all weather highways. d. A majority of supporting facilities are available at the site. e. No appreciable relocation of personnel would be required. f. If NPTC were also relocated to Langley, new facilities could be completed while the existing ones continue to operate, providing a minimum of disruption. g. If the Bureau of Public Roads property were obtained for Agency utilization, it would provide more room for this facility and provide a capability for additional expansion when necessary. Also security of Agency assets is further e~iki.anced by physical space expansion. It is possible that effective utilization of the existing Bureau of Public Roads Buildings could be made. h. If the existing Headquarters Building were modified to accept this project, such work as necessary could probably be accomplished mare quickly than new construction. Also the alteration work might be accomplished without extensive Congressional cansideratic~ns and other approvals. Also this approach would not indicate an abnormal "expanding Agency" image to the public ar the Congress. i. The "lease-purchase" approach to construction has the advantage of not requiring initial large fund approvals and outlays. ~, ~~- ~~~~~ 2 Approved For Release 2002/01/30: CIA-RDP86-002448000200230022-6 Approved For Release 2002/01/3~j~P86-002448000200230022-6 ,5.

An increase in the size or capacity of certain utilities uystems will. 'cue necessary. d. If the operation is a separate building, an increase in the guard force toill be needed. c. If NPxC remains at its present location, a separa- tion of :~'lznctional units m3.ght result. f. Considerable time for Congressional approval and completion of constxuc~ion will result 'if "conventional" procedures are utilized. g. The "enlargement" of the Agency may result in unfavorable public reaction and Congressional {political) opposition. h. I~' forts to obtain Bureau of Public Roads property could result in considerable Bureau opposition. i. Alteration of the existing Headquarters Building is limited by the physical characteristics of this structure such as location o~ colunms, walls, utilities lines, etc. j. Relocating present occupants of Tieadquarters results in further decentralization or separation of the Agency, aU well as implementing an expensive "checkerboard" operation. k. Approval by the Director would be required to acquire additional leased space. 1. Construction contract by the "turn-key" method may create legal and other problems 'by creating private interest and investment on public property.
