Complementing our November 4th posting on the presidential transition, here are three more websites for people who just can’t get enough of the presidential transition.
http://change.gov/ – Office of the President-Elect’s website with news, information on the transition, and a blog.
Following each presidential election, GAO serves as a resource to assist with the transition to a new Congress and administration. On this Web site, using its institutional knowledge and broad-based, nonpartisan work on matters across the government spectrum, GAO provides insight into, and recommendations for addressing, the nation’s major issues, risks and challenges.
The Presidential Transition Act of 2000 (P.L. 106-293) authorizes the General Services Administration (GSA) to develop a transition directory in consultation with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The Act provides that the transition directory “shall be a compilation of Federal publications and materials with supplementary materials developed by the Administrator that provides information on the officers, organization, and statutory and administrative authorities, functions, duties, responsibilities, and mission of each department and agency.” Senate Report 106-348 clarifies that the directory is intended to “assist in navigating the many responsibilities that fall on a new administration” that is “confronted by an overwhelming amount of material.”
