In July 2017, the FBI headquarters search was canceled, and the General Services Administration (GSA) was set the task to submit a new plan to the Senate’s Committee on Environment and Public Works. Unfortunately, the GSA has missed their deadline after receiving a 60-day extension from its original November 30 deadline

In an interview with Bisnow, Senator John Barrasso said, “It is unacceptable that the GSA has failed to meet the deadline that they committed to ... The men and women of the FBI, who keep America safe, require an office building that meets their needs. It’s past time for the GSA to provide the committee with some real answers.”

Originally, there were three sites sought out for the new FBI headquarters: Greenbelt, Maryland, Springfield, Virginia, and Landover, Maryland. Washington Business Journal reported that the GSA is endorsing the current location on Pennsylvania Avenue NW as the preferred site.
