Previous FEMA Federal Support Facility Olney eyeball:
The Department signed a MOU with the Federal Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) to establish a highly survivable redundant capability for the
Departments Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Information Technology
infrastructure at FEMAs Federal Support Center in Olney, Maryland.
This facility will serve as a live mirror site for the Beltsville Information
Management Center (BIMC) and is designed to handle any disruption to the
Departments communications infrastructure and ensure communications
with our overseas posts. Previous estimates for establishing an alternate
communication site for BIMC exceeded $500 million; this effort will cost
approximately $7 million.
