- The General Services Administration again appears to be mulling the development of a civilian cybersecurity campus (CCC) in the Washington, DC, metro area, according to the Washington Business Journal.
- This isn’t its first run at creating such a space. Similar plans were put on hold last year when the GSA stopped seeking funding for the project in the 2017 federal budget. A CCC project has been discussed since 2014.
- The disclosure was included in a recent federal notice requesting a four-year extension on a Department of Homeland Security lease in Northern Virginia to coincide with the expiration of another DHS lease. That could result in the two office spaces combining into one — the CCC.
The idea for the CCC has been on the table for a while, but nailing down the timing — and the funding — has been a continual challenge.
