Welcome to Dallas-Fort Worth
Federal Executive Board
The Federal Executive Boards (FEBs) were established in 1961 by a Presidential Directive to improve coordination among Federal activities and programs outside of Washington. The need for effective coordination among the field activities of Federal departments and agencies was then, and is still, very clear.
Approximately 88 percent of all Federal employees work outside the national capital area. Decisions affecting the expenditure of billions of dollars are made in the field. Federal programs have their impact largely through the actions of the field representatives of the departments and agencies. In addition, Federal officials outside Washington are the principal contact of the Federal Government with the citizens of this country.
