Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and Shared Neutrals Program

The Pittsburgh FEB ADR and Shared Neutrals Program is an interagency mediation program administered by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) in coordination with the Pittsburgh FEB. Upon request, the ADR and Shared Neutrals Program assists participating Federal agencies through a pool of trained, collateral-duty Federal employees who provide mediation services to agencies other than their own in exchange for like services to the program from the recipient agency.
