Abstract:

We believe that the choice of Arlington, VA, as the site for NSFs new headquarters building will allow the Foundation to fulfill its role in the development and implementation of national science policy. Although the new building is located outside downtown Washington, D.C., it 1 will enable employees who are currently housed in four different locations to be consolidated into one building 2 will provide working conditions superior to those in NSFs current headquarters buildings 3 will provide reasonably convenient access to other government offices and libraries in downtown Washington, D.C., through the adjacent Ballston Metrorail station, albeit less convenient than a downtown site and 4 is surrounded by plentiful amenities, including a hotel and shopping and eating establishments.
