National Science Foundation Relocation Update

The National Science Foundation issued an update on its relocation to Alexandria, Virginia. Details…

National Science Foundation - under construction on Eisenhower Avenue in Alexandria, Virginia

The National Science Foundation (NSF), as our readers are well aware, is moving to Alexandria, Virginia sometime in 2017. While the outer portion of the building is currently under construction, the design of the interior building space has been the subject of a dispute between the NSF and the union.

The NSF issued the following statement late Friday about the dispute:

In June 2013, the General Services Administration (GSA) announced a new lease agreement for the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) national headquarters to be located in Alexandria, Va. In January 2014, construction began on the 660,848 square feet of space. Throughout this process, NSF management has been negotiating with NSF’s union AFGE Local 3403 on the design of the building space, which ultimately came before the Federal Service Impasses Panel (FSIP) for resolution. As a result, NSF has directed GSA to conduct a redesign of the new NSF headquarters to implement the FSIP decision. NSF and GSA are working together to mitigate costs and schedule slippage.
