Defense Agency Leaving Prince William
– September 3, 2013 4:00 pm
MANASSAS, Va. – The Department of Defense is trading Prince William for Fairfax County, and will move 300 jobs from the Manassas area to Chantilly.
The Defense Contract Management Agency will close its office on Battleview Parkway in the Blue Ridge Office Park near the Manassas Campus of Northern Virginia Community College and will move all of their employees into a new office at 14501 George Carter Way in Chantilly. The new facility is about 10 miles from the office on Battleview Parkway, which has been open since 1993.
“The current DCMA facility in Manassas is approximately 36,000 square feet. Due to reorganization and additional workload, DCMA has outgrown its current facility in Manassas, but is remaining in the local area,” according to agency spokesman Billy Ray “B.R.” Brown.
The move comes about a month after DCMA told Potomac Local News the company had no intentions of leaving their Manassas-area office. The relocation should be complete by next summer.
DCMA’s Manassas area office provides administrations services to 1,000 federal contractors in the area. The agency is comprised of nearly 10,500 civilian workers and over 500 active duty military employees worldwide.
