Anne Arundel County is host to Fort George G. Meade, the home of the National Security Administration (NSA) and has been a major gainer to the BRAC 2005 decision. Through the BRAC process, Fort Meade has been the site for the relocation and consolidation of several Department of Defense (DOD) organizations. The BRAC process of moving direct jobs was completed September 2011.
Job growth continues as a result of BRAC surrounding Fort George G. Meade through supporting positions with the federal government and positions from new and expanding defense contractors.
