The General Services Administration is seeking $35 million for the design of a civilian cybersecurity center in the Washington, D.C. area, according to the agency’s 2015 budget request March 4.

GSA administrator Dan Tangherlini told reporters on a conference call that the center would bring together experts from agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security and the Justice Department together in a mutual location, according to a story in the Washington Business Journal.

The proposal is only in its early stages but that the center could help reduce reliance on costly leasing by moving the agencies into a new federal facility, according to the agency.

GSA is also asking for $100 million to help consolidate agency footprints and shrink spending on real estate, according to the budget request.
