Physical Security at the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review’s Headquarters Building (Limited Distribution)

March 2009


Our objective was to determine whether the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review’s (ODAR) main headquarters building (Tower) in Falls Church, Virginia complied with physical security standards.

While ODAR had taken a number of steps to improve security at the Tower, the Tower did not meet all the minimum physical security requirements. ODAR stated that the prior lease did not allow some of the required security upgrades. The Agency agreed with our recommendations and plans to make additional upgrades under the new contract.
