Coordinate Federal Executive Board ADR Programs

Most Federal Executive Boards in the U.S. have Shared Neutrals Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Programs associated with them. These programs pay for themselves. The Office of Personnel Management estimated that the average cost savings for a Pre-EEO mediation complaint was $68,000 for PY 2010. In the Puget Sound, the Federal Executive Board ADR Program saved Federal Agencies $7.5 million in PY 2010. A Federal Executive Board ADR Coordinator would save the government money by allowing the FEB ADR Programs throghout the country to pool resources. Training resources, forms, mediator training requirements, intake procedures and other materials would be shared between the programs.
