The OPM website hosts a lot of great information about approved programs. But when new program ideas are being considered, it is typically worked through the departments and agencies within the Washington, DC area. However, many of those departments and agencies have organizations/employees in field sites and information and solicitation of ideas rarely is requested or shared with those units. Similarly, the FEBs and FEAs may be considered as a source of information sharing and gathering, but there are still some field units that don't have a representative FEB and FEA. I would encourage OPM to identify representation from those field activities that specifically don't have a supporting FEB or FEA and that still has a large # of Federal workers.
