President's Management Council (PMC)

The PMC advises the President and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on government reform initiatives, provides performance and management leadership throughout the Executive Branch, and oversees implementation of government-wide management policies and programs. The PMC comprises the Chief Operating Officers of major Federal Government agencies, primarily Deputy Secretaries, Deputy Administrators, and agency heads from GSA and OPM. The PMC also sponsors the President’s Management Advisory Board, which provides private sector guidance and recommendations on improving Federal Government management and operations.


Cross-Cutting Performance and Management Initiatives: The PMC provides leadership for the identification and adoption of best practices government-wide, particularly those that involve cross-functional coordination. The PMC partners with other Executive Councils to design and develop interagency mechanisms (tools, processes and technologies) that accelerate the achievement of Administration management priorities. PMC is currently providing strong leadership and coordination on a range of Cross-Agency Priority (CAP) goals, including shared services, strategic sourcing, smarter IT delivery, benchmarking of mission-support functions, leveraging data assets to spur economic growth, and several initiatives to improve leadership and engagement across the federal workforce.

The President’s Management Advisory Board (PMAB): The PMAB develops recommendations on effective strategies for implementation of best business practices on matters related to Federal Government management and operations, with a particular focus on productivity, workforce engagement, and customer service. In recent years, the PMAB has helped the federal government achieve significant improvements in IT investments, onboarding for Senior Executive Service members, improper payments, and strategic sourcing.
