Knowing Your Government: How The Transition Works

the-white-houseThe 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
