XIII. Buildings and Facilities
Under the Secretary's important Public Health Infrastructure Initiative, CDC's management has the responsibility to ensure that: CDC has adequate facilities and equipment to carry out its public health mission; all facilities, particularly laboratories, must be safe for both workers and the community; the taxpayers' investment in these facilities is protected through effective maintenance and operations; facilities meet applicable fire and life safety codes; and all CDC facilities are operated in a responsible manner to reduce energy consumption.
Through the Agency's Master Plan, and annual Repair and Improvements ( R&I) Plan, CDC management determines the need for and schedules major and minor renovation, construction, and other facilities projects. Since 1993, CDC, in collaboration with the General Services Administration (GSA), has conducted and updated a CDC-wide master planning effort intended to identify and systematically address severely inadequate facilities conditions at our Clifton Road and Chamblee Campuses in Atlanta, Georgia. The Master Plan strategy, consisting of four 5-year increments, will allow CDC to modernize existing laboratory and support facilities where economically and programmatically feasible, and construct new facilities when required, as well as to properly operate and maintain existing facilities.
The goal of the Master Plan is to enable CDC to provide safe, modern, efficient, and physically secure laboratories and support facilities in the most economical manner possible. The objectives are: (1) T significantly increase CDC's laboratory capacity to handle new, highly pathogenic microorganisms associated with new and re-emerging infectious diseases, and bioterrorism through the modernization of existing facilities, and construction of new facilities; (2) To consolidate CDC's Atlanta research, support, and administrative functions onto existing CDC-owned campuses at Clifton Road, Atlanta, Georgia and Chamblee, Georgia; and (3) To continue to lease space through GSA to meet warehouse requirements, short-term office and emergency "surge space" for which CDC has not had sufficient time to plan and budget for under the Master Plan.
Performance Goal: Implement the scheduled improvements, construction, security, and maintenance as specified under the FY 2000 schedule of the five-year Master Plan.
