Beginning in 1989, Fort Belvoir, like many other Department of Defense (DoD) installations, was subject to a series of the new Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) legislations. In subsequent BRAC actions, a number of large agencies, such as the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) closed their doors in the National Capital Region and re-located to new facilities on Fort Belvoir. In the latest round of BRAC proceedings, the 2005 legislation eventually directed that Fort Belvoir would receive a net gain of 19,300 personnel on Main Post and its sub-installations.

On May 5, 2008, Virginia Industries for the Blind (VIB) opened the Ft. Belvoir AbilityOne Base Supply Center (BSC).
