For purposes of the federal government, who are the ALE and the ALE member?

To ease compliance with IRC section 6056, OPM is providing a definition of the ALE and ALE member.  The ALE is the group of civilian, non-Postal, executive agencies that are permitted by statute to participate in the FEHB Program. The ALE members are Cabinet level Departments, independent agencies, boards and commissions that make up the ALE.  It is the responsibility of government entities outside the OPM defined ALE to determine whether they are ALEs and  responsible for reporting.
