The State of Washington is preparing to take a major leap forward with a new 362,000 square-foot headquarters for its Department of Information Services (DIS). On Thursday, August 20, 2009 ground was broken for a new data center and office building, to consolidate all of the Department’s now scattered operations into one location. The buildings have been designed to adapt to the current and future technology needs of all of the Department’s services, which include the processing of millions of business transactions every day for Washington’s residents, businesses and state agencies — in social service, employment, corrections, licensing, finance, retirement systems, healthcare and natural resources.
NDC Housing and Economic Development Corporation provided the nearly $306,000,000 financing for the project through our Public Private Partnership program, and it is one of many similar projects we have financed and developed in Washington for the State, King County, Seattle and other communities.
