I just read this sentence:

I've already spoken to Nick over at the C.I.A.

And such a small question, what does over mean here? I can't find a suitable value, I will be glad to get a hint.

"over" carries the sense of "over there". This is a casual expression. It suggests that the CIA office is in a different building, and is separate from where the speaker is.
