Approved For Release 2008/06/04: CIA-RDP89-00244R000400740058-9 18 MAY 1983 SUBJECT: Congressional Inquiry - Executive Office of the President Space at 1000 Glebe Road 1. On April 21, 1983, the undersigned received a telephone call from Mr. Jerry Shiplett, an established Agency contact on the Planning Staff, National Capital Region, General Services Administration (GSA). He informed that during the April 14, 1983, open hearings of the House Committee on Public Works and Transportation, Subcommittee on Buildings and Grounds, Mr. Richard Haase, Commissioner, Public Buildings Service, Central Office, GSA, presented GSA's forthcoming prospectus program requirements. 2. In his presentation, Mr. Haase referred to Executive Office of the President (EOP) space in 1000 Glebe Road. A member of the Subcommittee asked why EOP space was located in this building and Mr. Haase indicated the space was occupied by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). He was further asked why the space was located there rather than in the present Headquarters Building, and, will it eventually be consolidated at Langley. Mr. Haase was also requested to provide the Subcommittee with a total listing of all EOP lease holdings and lease locations. 3. GSA representatives reasoned that the preparation and submission of the above requested listing of EOP lease holdings was not feasible or necessary with regard to the ongoing prospectus exercise and the Subcommittee found that acceptable. However, Mr. Shiplett wanted me to assist him in preparing GSA's response to the Subcommittee's questions. 4. Since the referenced space i$ occupied by the Joint Publications and Research Service ((JPRS), Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS), I telephonically informed) I STAT Deputy Director, FBIS, and of the Public STAT Affairs Division, Office of External A airs, of the above background and discussed an acceptable response which I would coordinate with Mr. Shiplett. 5. It was mutually agreed by all, including Mr. Shiplett, that in answer to the question "Why is EOP located in the Broyhill Building (1000 Glebe Road) and not in their main head- quarters installation?", that Mr. Shiplett would submit the following GSA statement to the Subcommittee: OL 13343-83 Approved For Release 2008/06/04: CIA-RDP89-00244R000400740058-9 Approved For Release 2008/06/04: CIA-RDP89-00244R000400740058-9 SUBJECT: Congressional Inquiry - Executive Office of the President Space at 1000 Glebe Road "When there was a requirement for this amount of space, space was not available at either the main installation or any of the major satellite locations. In lieu of these locations, space in the Broyhill Building was acceptable." 6. It is worthy of note that the use of the title, CIA, was intentionally not used in the above GSA response to the Subcommittee.
