The FLETA Board is comprised of senior executives and representatives from the federal government, academia, and other non-federal organizations as members of the FLETA Board.
The 2016-2018 FLETA Board Executive Committee members include:
- Chair: Domenic McClinton; Director, Internal Revenue Service National Criminal Investigation Training Academy

The FLETA Board is the accrediting body for all federal law enforcement training and support programs. To achieve accreditation, agencies submit to an independent review of their academy and/or program to ensure compliance with the FLETA Standards and Procedures in the areas of: Administration, Training Staff, Training Development, Training Delivery, and Distance Learning. Accreditation is a cyclical process occurring every five years. Each year, agencies must submit annual reports in preparation for reaccreditation, which is a new and independent review of the academy/program.
