Since 1962 the Government's policy has been to relocate both civil and defense activities from the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. The President's national urban policy, announced in March 1978, committed the Government to relocate activities and to procure goods and services in economically depressed communities. A series of legislation and regulations established the policy and criteria for decentralizing Federal activities in and near the District of Columbia. A report is to be delivered to the Congress on January 10, 1980, which will cover the type and number of organizations involved in decentralization of Federal Government activities, the employees who would be affected, and the advantages or disadvantages of recommended locations.
