The Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) directs the worldwide overseas building program for the Department of State. Working with other offices and bureaus, foreign affairs agencies, and Congress, OBO sets worldwide priorities for the design, construction, acquisition, maintenance, use, and sale of real properties and the use of sales proceeds. Embassies and consulates are required to be safe, secure, and functional, but also should be inspiring places for the conduct of diplomacy and represent the best of American architecture, design, engineering, and construction. OBO develops sites that best represent the U.S. government, its goals and enhance the conduct of diplomacy. Whenever possible, sites are selected in urban areas, allowing U.S. embassies and consulates to contribute to the civic and urban fabric of host cities. The design of buildings and sites is a comprehensive process of understanding and balancing requirements and incorporating them into a thoughtfully conceived, cohesive, and inspiring, whole.
Regions include: Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America.
