Federal Executive Boards
Federal Executive Boards and Federal Executive Associations
are our partners
in reinventing government over the nation. President Clinton, in a 1994
memorandum, asked these organizations to assume a leadership role,
especially in helping government improve its service to its customers.
The next year, these organizations published a composite annual report
that included their reinvention efforts.
FEBs and FEAs played a key role in helping organize the
customer-friendly government Blue Pages. They are also important players
in the welfare-to-work initiative. Some FEBs are experimenting with new
ways of serving customers, such as one-stop stores. These facilities involve cooperative
partnerships between federal, state, and/or local governments. One-stop
stores make it easier for their customers (often the public or small
businesses) to obtain service at a central location.
FEBs and FEAs also screen nominations for Vice President Gore's Hammer
Awards. This award goes to teams of federal workers and their partners
for their achievements in creating a government that works better and
costs less--and delivering results important to the American people.
Today, FEB and FEA leaders are ambassadors of reinvention in their local
communities. Some are helping facilitate interagency Conversations with
America to learn what government services Americans realy care about.
The Office of Personnel Management oversees the FEB and FEA program.
