Fiscal Year 2017 Federal Executive Board National Network Annual Report

It is my pleasure to share with you the attached Fiscal Year 2017 Federal Executive Board National Network Annual Report. 

Federal Executive Boards (FEBs) serve as catalysts for intergovernmental communication, coordination, and collaboration across the Nation.  Each Board builds interagency partnerships, providing a forum for agencies to identify common needs and coordinate actions to meet shared goals.  The Boards connect strategic partners across Federal, State, and Local governments, and facilitate collaboration to achieve their objectives.  Given their involvement with local communities, the 28 FEBs are significant contributors to advancing key policy initiatives outside of Washington, DC. 

Fiscal Year 2017 proved to be a very productive year for the Boards in a number of important areas.  FEBs improved agencies’ emergency preparedness by sponsoring 14 continuity exercises and 47 emergency planning workshops, provided training opportunities to 39,200 Federal employees, and supported local Combined Federal Campaign efforts.  The Boards made significant progress in all three of their strategic lines of business and, as a result, reduced duplicative efforts and contributed to improved Government operations. 

I commend the Boards for their contribution to a more effective and efficient Federal Government to serve the American public.
