Ten years later, he was promoted to a supervisory special agent at headquarters in the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division, where he was responsible for training law enforcement organizations throughout the world in the various CJIS systems and programs, the FBI said.

In 2000, he became a supervisory senior resident agent in Augusta, Ga.

In 2007, he was promoted to assistant special agent in charge of the Omaha Division, where he oversaw criminal, cyber, and administrative matters until 2012 when he returned to headquarters.

Tussle for FBI Headquarters: Maryland Says It Has More Bureau Employees Than Other States

The ongoing battle to land the new FBI headquarters has prompted a tussle between Maryland and Virginia about where most of the bureau’s staff actually live, the Washington Post reports.

According to a previously unreleased study from 2012 by the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development, Maryland is the most popular home for headquarters employees.

“Based on commuting data of the Census block groups of the current FBI location, we estimate that 43.2% of current FBI headquarters employees reside in Maryland, 33.4% in Virginia and 17.4% in DC,” the report states. ” Outside of Washington DC, the largest number of commuters resides in Montgomery County (16.4%), Prince George’s County (16.3%) and Fairfax County (15.4%).”

The Washington Post reports that residency is important and could give Maryland the advantage.

But little could be gained from an income tax standpoint.

“The only way that Maryland would gain income tax revenue from FBI employees would be if they relocate from either D.C. or Virginia,” wrote the Maryland researchers, in their report. “Currently, 75 percent of workers around the FBI headquarters commute from within a 25-mile radius and would be unlikely to relocate. Very few of the current FBI workers would be likely to relocate to Maryland in the near term.”

 

 

 

FBI Expects to Soon Release Short List of Potential New FBI Headquarters Sites

The search for a future FBI headquarters should soon be narrowed down to a short list, the Washington Post reports.

Communities and politicians in Virginia and Maryland are watching closely as the FBI looks to build the largest new federal campus in more than 50 years.

Once the list is narrowed down to finalists, the developers will be invited to submit proposals to build the headquarters, the New York Times wrote.

The FBI is looking to build 2.1 million-square-foot campus that must be within 2.5 miles of the Beltway and two miles of a Metro station.

The federal government expects to choose the final location late next year.

Budget Cuts Dramatically Reduce Spending on Homeland Security Headquarters

A new Homeland Security headquarters in Washington will be much smaller than initially conceived because of budget cuts approved by the House on Wednesday, the Washington Post reports.

Instead of having $354 million for the HQ, the agency will have about $155 million.

The Republican-Controlled House Appropriations Committee described the bill as “responsible choices to save taxpayer dollars by reducing overhead costs and cutting funding for lower-priority programs.”

Homeland Security, the third largest department in the federal government, has operated for 11 years without a consolidated headquarters, the Post wrote.

FBI to Take Off 10 Weekdays a Year to Combat Budget Cuts

Tough times mean desperate measures for the FBI.

To absorb budget reductions, the FBI plans to close its headquarters and offices nationwide for about 10 weekdays over the next year, The New York Times reports.

On the furlough days, the FBI will maintain a small crew with the ability to call back agents in the event of a terrorist attack or some other serious crime, the Times wrote.

The FBI spends $16 million a day to pay employees.

FBI Lays Out What It Wants for New Headquarters

By Jonathan O’Connell
Washington Post

It was 35 minutes past the scheduled start time when everyone had finally made their way through the security and Dan Tangherlini, acting administrator of the General Services Administration, took the podium.

He assumed by the size of the crowd — an estimated 350 people, some of them watching on a screen in an overflow room — that there was a lot of interest in building a new headquarters for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. “I think that bodes pretty well for this project,” he said.

Six weeks after issuing a broad search for ideas of how and where to build a consolidated headquarters for the FBI, developers, Tangherlini and his staff reiterated why they wished to swap the J. Edgar Hoover building property on Pennsylvania Avenue for a new consolidated FBI headquarters: the Hoover building is obsolete and the government has limited capital to build a replacement.
