Award nominations are reviewed by leadership panels using a set criteria for the respective category: Leadership, Customer Service, Community Service, Diversity and Inclusion, Distinguished Lifetime Achievement, Distinguished Military/Military Support, Extraordinary Contributions in the Accomplishment of Agency Mission, Administrative Support, and Law Enforcement.Approximately 2,000 awards are given out each year.  

President Kennedy established FEBs in 1961 to improve communication, coordination, and collaboration between federal agencies outside of Washington, D.C.  There are 28 FEBs in metropolitan areas with significant federal populations.  Each board brings together senior federal agency officials in its geographic coverage area to address, support, or amplify matters of interagency importance.
