Federal Manager's Daily Report

Federal Executive Boards are located in cities which are major centers of Federal activity, and composed of the Federal field office agency heads and military commanders in these cities - FEB.gov Image: https://www.feb.gov/

The White House’s fiscal 2023 budget proposal seeks to “refresh” the Federal Executive Board Program, including creating a central $10 million operating fund and a program managing office to replace what it calls the current “ad hoc funding structure.”

FEBs are centered in major cities and some smaller ones with large federal populations, and consist of executives of the differing agencies in an area. Typical activities include conducting emergency preparedness exercises, training workshops, leadership development programs and alternative dispute resolution programs. In recent years the boards also have been active in coordinating interagency pandemic response efforts.

Says a budget document, “Fluctuating commitments of budget and staff by employing agencies previously jeopardized a sustained, dedicated approach over time. Centered around a coordinated set of workforce and administration priorities, FEBs will focus on local recruitment efforts helping to build the next gen¬eration of federal talent from diverse communities. In particular, leveraging FEBs to build internal and external relationships that will fortify federal talent pipelines and recruitment is urgent given the challenges federal agencies face around federal hiring.”

“A greater focus on pooling resources in areas of common interest will advance program efficiencies and cost savings and lead to better engagement opportunities for federal employees in the field enhancing overall agency mission resilience. For example, FEBs will have expanded resources and capabilities to support the federal workforce in engaging directly with their communities and serving as coordinated and targeted recruitment hubs that can connect federal agencies with regional talent pools, such as local educational institutions,” it says.
