The Honolulu-Pacific Federal Executive Board (HPFEB) was established in 1966 and is hosted by the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility. The Executive Director and Deputy Executive Director are Navy employees, and the HPFEB Office is located in the Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole Federal Building at 300 Ala Moana Boulevard in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The Federal Executive Boards (FEBs), established by Presidential Directive in 1961, are a forum for communication and collaboration among Federal agencies outside of Washington, DC. 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 Region. Federal programs have their impact largely through the actions of the field representatives of the departments and agencies. In addition, Federal representatives are the principal contact with the Federal Government for the citizens of the United States. The National network of 28 FEBs, located in areas of significant Federal populations, serves as the cornerstone for strategic partnering in Government.
