New building opens at Fort Meade

A ceremony attended by high-ranking military officials and civilian lawmakers including U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin and Rep. John Sarbanes is scheduled Wednesday at Fort Meade to mark the official opening of the Defense Adjudication Activities facility, a new, 151,000-square-foot building constructed as part of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) relocation.

Completed in May, the building will house 10 Department of Defense agencies, with office space for 760 personnel. Employees, who have been relocating their offices at the building at the rate of 150 per week, will process security clearances for Department of Defense representatives and contractors who work with sensitive information.
