The Federal Executive Boards (FEBs) were created in 1961 to foster communication, coordination and collaboration among Federal agencies outside of Washington, DC. They are under the jurisdiction of the Office of Personnel Management. Currently, approximately 88% of Federal employees are located outside the Washington, DC area. Across the nation, in 28 locations with a high concentration of Federal agencies and Federal employees, FEBs provide a forum for Federal leaders to connect to discuss management challenges and strategies. The FEBs enable collaboration on agency missions and goals, common issues,and special initiatives. FEBs are also a resource for agencies to share best practices among their peers.
"The first 10 Federal Executive Boards (FEB) were established by Presidential Directive in 1961 to "increase the effectiveness and economy of Federal agencies." Currently, 28 FEBs are located nationwide in areas with a significant Federal population. The Boards are composed of local, senior-level Federal agency officials.
Today, the Boards are more relevant than at any other time in history. In continuing times of personnel reductions, budget cutbacks and reorganization, interagency collaboration is critical to achieving results. As the local Federal ambassador, the FEB identifies opportunities for partnerships with intergovernmental and community organizations. Interagency collaboration is no longer just a wise choice; it is the platform for meeting agency mission goals.
The FEBs are models for partnership-based government. The Boards serve as a vital link to intergovernmental coordination identifying common ground and building cooperative relationships. FEBs also have a long history of establishing and maintaining valuable communication links to prepare for and respond to local and national emergencies. While promoting issues related to Administration initiatives, they provide targeted training programs, employee development, shared resources, and local community outreach and participation. The Board's role as a conduit of information and a meeting point for a variety of agencies--each with a different mission--is critical to a more effective government. FEBs promote awareness of the Federal Government's involvement in, and contribution to, communities across the country.
