Construction of some Army Cyber Command Headquarters facilities on Fort Gordon could cost between $100 million and $250 million, according to a post made on a federal procurement site last month.

According to the "presolicitation" posted on FedBizOpps.gov on Dec. 18, the Army Corps of Engineers' Savannah District plans to issue an invitation to bid for the Cyber Command's new Command and Control Facility with a Cyber Protection Team Operations facility to be built on the installation.

Both facilities are expected to be built using Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility and Department of Defense Minimum Antiterrorism for Buildings standards, and are to be designed to last a minimum of 50 years.

One structure will house the Army Cyber Command/Joint Forces Headquarters, and the other will provide an administrative area that includes "special use space for a SCIF and forensic lab." The latter will also include food service and physical fitness areas.

The $100 million to $250 million figure is only an estimate. The first solicitation isn't anticipated to be released before Feb. 3. The Step 1 solicitation is expected to close on or about March 4, with Step 2 being issued on or about May 27, closing on June 27, according to the post.

The projects will likely be awarded during the 2016 and 2017 fiscal years and are expected to be completed about 720 calendar days from the notice to proceed, the post said.
