Buildings, properties and facilities of the SSA are acquired for purposes of operational requirements. Out of necessity, the operations of SSA are mostly and mainly covert in nature. It is therefore illegal to disclose the asset base of the SSA to non-members.
The SSA also operates on the basis of need to know that essentially dictates that any disclosure of classified information should only be for purposes of achieving operational objectives.
