The State Department is moving around 1,900 employees to downtown Washington, D.C. to occupy the building where the World Bank used to be.

GSA, which has been advocating for a target workspace of 150 square feet per worker, finished the deal in late December, according to a Washington Business Journal report.

Elaine Clancy, director of leasing at the General Services Administration's Public Buildings Service, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss the federal government's leasing landscape.

Clancy discussed how much money the deal could save, who will be affected at the State Department and why the 150 square feet target is so important.
