PROJECT: Independent Review and Economic Analysis of the Move of the FBI Headquarters
CLIENT: District of Columbia Office of the Chief Financial Officer
DESCRIPTION: The General Services Administration (GSA) is seeking to relocate the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Headquarters, currently on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC, to a new campus facility in the greater capital region. The Request for Information issued by GSA returned 35 response proposals from landowners, developers, and local governments by the March 3, 2013 deadline. Among those proposals was at least one by the District of Columbia government to retain the headquarters in the District at Poplar Point. Even though GSA is the lead agency, there is considerable interest and involvement in the decision to move the FBI from other executive branch stakeholders, local and state governments, as well as Congress, which is scheduling hearings on the relocation effort.

PROJECT: Assessing SafeGov’s Cybersecurity Evaluation Framework
DESCRIPTION: Increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks threaten the security of federal information systems, but the federal government’s current approach to security and privacy assessments of its information systems may hinder an effective response to this dynamic threat. SafeGov.org, a forum for IT providers and leading industry experts, is developing a new approach—an Evaluation Capability Maturity Model (ECMM) framework—that it believes would more effectively assess federal information system security and data protection. An Academy Panel of Fellows will meet once during this project to review SafeGov’s ECMM framework and identify issues related to implementation.
Earl E. Devaney, Chair
The Panel meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 19 from 1pm-5pm (in Staats B/C).
