The transfer of power from one administration to the next marks a significant moment in U.S. history. The Presidential Transition Acts of 1963 and 2015 give the General Services Administration (GSA) a prominent role in this process. They authorize the Administrator of GSA to provide the President-elect and the Vice-President-elect the services and facilities needed to assume their official duties.
The National Archives and Records Management Administration (NARA) guide, Documenting Your Public Service, provides high-level Government officials with basic information to enable them to distinguish Federal records from other documentary materials, including personal files.
To facilitate this process GSA has assembled a number of teams:
- Incoming Presidential Transition Team
- Inaugural Team
- Internal GSA Transition Team
- Outgoing Administration Team
We will have to all watch and see what happens
