IG: Army improperly chose Alexandria location for BRAC building By ANDY MEDICI Federal Times April 21, 2011The battle over the controversial new Army administrative headquarters building in Alexandria, Va., may be heading to court.
Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., unveiled a new Defense Department inspector general report that concludes the Army failed to perform adequate environmental assessments before choosing the building's location, and he said the report is the foundation for a lawsuit.
