Govt to seek designer for new intelligence HQ
Attorney-General Philip Ruddock and Administration Minister Nick Minchin announced the government will shortly seek submissions on the design of a new "state of the art intelligence facility".
The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) and Office of National Assessments will move to a purpose-built building within Canberra's security precinct by 2010-11.
According to the government, ASIO needs to relocate as a result of the Taylor review, which recommended the organisation grow to 1860 staff by 2010-11.
