Mission of the Federal Executive Boards

"Although each executive agency and its field organization have a special mission, there are many matters on which the work of the departments converge. Among them are management and budgetary procedures, personnel policies, recruitment efforts, office information duties, and similar matters. There are opportunities to pool experience and resources, and to accomplish savings. In substantive programs there are also opportunities for a more closely coordinated approach in many activities."

Today, a quarter of a century later, 28 FEBs exist to provide closer coordination among Federal agencies outside Washington, DC. As regional hubs for all government activity, their work relates to five mission themes:
