The Sidney Yates Building, formerly called the Auditors Building Complex, at 14th St. and Independence Ave. in Washington, D.C., and originally built as the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, is an historic building complex built in 1878–1880. It is Romanesque in style and was designed by the office of James G. Hill.
The building was completed in 1880 to house the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. In 1915, after the Bureau relocated, it was renovated to house the Treasury Department's Auditors Division.
It is now part of the complex of buildings that houses the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It was renovated in the period 1987–1990 to house the USDA Forest Service headquarters. In 1999, it was redesignated the Sidney R. Yates Federal Building, honoring Illinois Congressman Sidney R. Yates.
