The end-of-year holiday season often inspires Washingtonians to donate time, money or talents to their communities. Kojo explores different opportunities to give back in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
The General Services Administration is the agency in charge of handling the workplace needs of the federal government. The biggest task that falls under that umbrella is developing and maintaining the federal government’s buildings and office space. The GSA is in charge of more than 100 million square feet of federal work space in Maryland, D.C. and Virginia and is currently in the midst of several large-scale projects whose outcomes have big ramifications for the local economy and workers — government or not. Those include moving the FBI headquarters out of the crumbling J. Edgar Hoover building downtown and consolidating the Department of Homeland Security’s offices at the St. Elizabeth’s campus in Anacostia. Kojo chats with the D.C. native in charge of GSA today.
