Update on FASTC Project at Fort Pickett

August 9, 2013


At this time, further work on the FASTC project at Fort Pickett is on hold and no decisions have been reached yet. The Administration has asked the Department of State to conduct additional due diligence. The project will remain on hold until the additional due diligence effort is completed. More information will be released once a decision has been made.

The State Department works every day to evaluate and mitigate threats to our personnel around the world. The attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities last September – in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, and the Sudan – emphasize the need for a dedicated Foreign Affairs Security Training Center to ensure the foreign affairs community and other agency personnel serving in critical posts are well-prepared.
