Aging federal buildings are not getting the funding they need to make necessary repairs, Federal News Radio reports.

The General Services Administration says that it doesn't expect to receive any maintenance or repair funding in 2013, meaning they expect to fall even further behind in the upkeep of the buildings where federal employees work.

A GSA official says that $1 of maintenance now would replace the need to invest as much as $5 worth of capital investments in future repairs.

"While we are figuring out ways to keep the buildings at some level of operational quality right now, what's going to happen in three, four, five years down the road is that lack of investment will come back in the form of really dramatic concerns," GSA acting administrator Dan Tangherlini told Federal News Radio.
