DISA to break ground for new headquarters

The Defense Information Systems Agency on April 16 will break ground for its new headquarters facility at Fort Meade, Md., in a ceremony hosted by Lt. Gen. Charles Croom, the agency's director.

The ceremony will begin construction of DISA’s planned headquarters, a 1,070,000-square-foot campus facility that will take about three years to build. The Army Corps of Engineers in early March awarded a $370-million single design-build contract for the headquarters to Hensel Phelps Construction.


To comply with the Base Realignment and Closure legislation of 2005, DISA will relocate to the new 95-acre site by September 2011 from its primary headquarters in Arlington, Va. The agency plans to transfer nearly all its 4,300 DISA, Joint Task Force-Global Network Operations and tenant positions to the planned facility on the grounds of the Army base.
