Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO examined alternative proposals of the General Services Administration (GSA) and the U.S. District Court, Central District of California, for meeting the long-term space needs of the District Court in Los Angeles, California.

GAO found that the GSA proposal would: (1) provide space for the court's expansion needs in a planned GSA federal building; (2) split courthouse activities between the existing courthouse and the new building; and (3) incur additional operating and security costs to cover the split activities. GAO found that the District Court proposal would: (1) involve construction of an annex to the existing Los Angeles federal courthouse; and (2) result in higher construction costs than the GSA proposal due to historical preservation requirements, architectural redesign fees, and construction and occupancy delays. GAO believes that there is insufficient evidence to suggest that Congress reconsider its approval of the GSA proposal.
