Thank you for your inquiry regarding the relocation of the Georgetown office. The lease for the office is expiring, which prompted a search for new space.
Below is a statement from Gina Gilliam, Regional Press Officer, General Services Administration (GSA). The GSA, as landlord for the federal civilian government, leases workspace from the private sector.
"The Social Security Administration office will move to Vineyards at Nassau Valley, 12001 Old Vine Boulevard in Lewes, Delaware in summer 2014. This move is a result of an open and competitive procurement for leased space that meets the Social Security Administration's space requirements, accommodates their regional operations, and offered the lowest overall commercial rent rate to the government. By law, GSA must seek full and open competition for all leasing actions. Under the Competition in Contracting Act, GSA is required to seek full and open competition for all leasing actions."
Members of the public who use public transportation to visit the Georgetown office will be able to take DART’s Route 206 bus, which originates at the Georgetown transit hub, to the new office. Residents from Bridgeville, Seaford and Laurel who take the Route 212 bus to visit Georgetown may transfer to the Route 206 bus at the Georgetown transit hub.
