U.S. Department of State, Diplomatic Security Service, Foreign Affairs Security Training Center (FASTC)
General Services Administration in partnership with the U.S. Department of State
The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) led a $426 million phased design and construction project for the U.S. Department of State (DOS) Diplomatic Security Service, Foreign Affairs Security Training Center (FASTC) in Virginia on time and on budget. The 1,350-acre campus consolidated 11 hard-skills training sites and opened in November 2019 as the nation’s largest provider of foreign affairs security training. A 10-year partnership between GSA and DOS solidified while planning and delivering a mission-critical facility for the Department’s security personnel, diplomats, foreign service officers and families trained to be safe in today’s overseas environment.
