Fiscal Year 2016 Federal Executive Board Network Annual Report

It is my pleasure to share with you the enclosed Fiscal Year 2016 Federal Executive Board 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 2016 proved to be a very productive year for the Boards in a number of important areas.  FEBs improved agencies’ emergency preparedness by sponsoring 23 continuity exercises and 68 emergency planning workshops, provided training opportunities to 29,700 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.
