NSA HQ Will House 11,000

The National Security Agency could be adding thousands of jobs as it revs up plans to build a new complex near its Anne Arundel County headquarters.

The secretive agency, which did not immediately respond to requests for comment Friday afternoon, wants to build 5.8 million square feet over 20 years on Fort Meade land. NSA detailed the plans in a notice published in the Federal Register this month, reported today by The Baltimore Business Journal.

NSA said in the notice that the new space would house as many as 11,000 employees. But it did not say how many of the jobs would be newly created as opposed to moved from older buildings.
