FEB Overview & History

The St. Louis Federal Executive Board is one of the original ten Executive Boards established by a Presidential Memorandum of November 10, 1961, by President John F. Kennedy. In 1982, the Executive Office of the President transferred authority for the FEB function to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, which today maintains oversight of the FEB program. The FEB responsibilities are outlined in section 960 of title 5 of the United States Code. Today there are 28 Federal Executive Boards nationwide. FEBs saves federal agencies millions of dollars each year by:

  • Communicating emergency and other critical information
  • Coordinating local engagement and community service efforts
  • Collaborating delivery of leadership and common needs training
