The optimized potential method is derived for ensembles of excited states. The ensemble Hartree-Fock method is introduced and ensemble Hartree-Fock equations are derived. By posing the ensemble Hartree-Fock method as an ensemble density functional one, an ensemble exchange potential is derived. By approximating the ensemble Hartree-Fock orbitals with the ensemble Kohn-Sham ones, the generalized version of the Krieger-Li-Iafrate (KLI) approximation to the optimized effective potential (OPM) method is obtained.
