The General Services Administration (GSA) was directed to consider buildings with historic, architectural, or cultural significance as the primary alternative for meeting the space needs of the government. However, GSA appears to be operating under the assumption that the acquisition of these structures take precedence over the need for additional federally- owned space in areas where the structures are located.

In a prior report, it was recommended that Congress clarify its intent regarding this directive. The renovation of Nashville's historic train station building was the first structure planned for acquisition and renovation pursuant to the directive. In approving the prospectus for the Nashville project, the congressional committees did not have complete and reliable information on several important issues. The information provided was incomplete and inaccurate. The inadequacies not presented could affect the feasibility and prudence of the proposed project.
