Roles and Responsibilities


Office of Personnel Management (OPM)
Oversight of the entire CFC program is the responsibility of the Office of CFC Operations at OPM in Washington, D.C.

Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC)
Each of the 36 local CFC zones is governed by a Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC). An LFCC is comprised of federal employees, and in the case of the CFCO, is made up of DoD personnel at the Pentagon. LFCCs are overseen by OPM and must comply with CFC regulations and guidance memoranda, as well as meet the deadlines in the CFC calendar. LFCCs serve as a board of directors for the campaign zone. LFCCs are responsible for selecting and monitoring the work of an Outreach Coordinator (OC) to implement the CFC in the local zone.

Community/Area Project Officer (CAPO)
The individual or team of individuals selected by the installation commander to lead the installation's CFC effort. The CAPO, under the guidance of the OC, develops a plan to communicate about the CFC to all employees, recruits a planning committee, coordinates with unit leaders to identify Keyworkers, facilitates Keyworker training, supports the implementation of all planned events, and is responsible for briefing installation leadership on the progress of the campaign.

A federal employee who personally contacts colleagues to promote the CFC, answers questions, and asks people to participate by making a monetary gift and/or pledging volunteer hours. We recommend a ratio of one Keyworker for every 50 employees.


Outreach Coordinator (OC)
The entity selected by the LFCC to implement campaign marketing and logistics within the zone. The OC is responsible for campaign worker training, printing and distribution of campaign materials, coordinating with charities in support of CFC events, and all campaign marketing activities. 

Central Campaign Administrator (CCA)
The organization responsible for developing and maintaining the CFC giving website, receiving pledge funds and data, and making distributions to charities. The CCA can be contacted at: 800-797-0098 or
