About

Overview

Federal Executive Boards (FEBs) perform highly valuable functions. Specifically, they provide:

  • a forum for the exchange of information between Washington and the field about programs, management strategies, and administrative challenges;
  • a point of coordination for the development and operation of Federal programs having common characteristics;
  • a means of communication through which Washington can strengthen the field understanding and support of management initiatives and concerns; and
  • Federal representation and involvement within their communities.

The FEBs implement these functions, under the direction of the Office of Personnel Management. Examples of their activities are:

  • the dissemination of information on Administration initiatives;
  • the sharing of technical knowledge and resources in procurement, human resources management, and information technology;
  • implementation of the local Combined Federal Campaign;
  • the pooling of resources to provide, as efficiently as possible, and at the least possible cost to the taxpayers, common services such as training courses, and alternative dispute resolution consortiums;
  • encouragement of employee initiatives and better performance through special recognition and other incentive programs; and
  • emergency operations, such as under hazardous weather conditions and natural and man-made disasters; responding to blood donation needs; and communicating related leave policies.

The Federal Executive Board network continues to be a constructive, unifying force within the Federal Government. In the course of its more than 55-year history, the FEB system has more than proved its value in ensuring a clear and effective communications medium between all levels of Government. FEBs operate under the oversight of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management in accordance with regulations located at 5 CFR ┬ž 960.
