NGA Campus East, or NCE, serves as NGA’s headquarters and is located on Fort Belvoir North in Springfield, Va. Authorized by the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Act and completed in September 2011, NCE marked the consolidation of NGA’s major East Coast operations and facilities located throughout the National Capital Region of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
The state-of-the-art NCE facility was specifically designed to enhance mission performance, facilitate physical and virtual collaboration, and promote greater information sharing within the agency and across the U.S. Intelligence Community and Department of Defense. The facility was designed for 8,500 NGA employees – government civilians, military members and contractors, who moved into the facility over the course of eight months, and provides a secure and modern working environment to improve product delivery through improved collaboration, interaction and communication among NGA’s employees.
NCE is the third largest federal facility in Washington, D.C. area, at approximately 2.77 million square feet, after the Pentagon, at 6.5 million square feet, and the Ronald Reagan building, at 3.2 million square feet.
