NARA – Broomfield, a 161,730 leased square foot build-to-suit warehouse constructed in 2012, serves as the new Federal Records Center (FRC) in the Denver metropolitan area. NARA – Broomfield is 100% leased to the General Services Administration (GSA) on behalf of NARA pursuant to a 20-year lease, which does not expire until May 2032. NARA – Broomfield is one of 18 facilities strategically located throughout the country, and holds permanent and temporary records created by Federal agencies and courts across seven states. To ensure the preservation of these important documents, the facility was specifically constructed to the exact needs of the National Archives, providing for optimal environmental controls and to maintain certain set points for both temperature and humidity.
With a professional staff of approximately 1,110 Federal employees, the FRC services approximately 13 million reference requests annually across all locations for nearly 400 Federal agency customers. The enduring nature of this mission necessitates physical storage and maintenance of highly important documents in optimal storage conditions throughout the United States.
