2008-2009 Presidential Transition Resources

The General Services Administration (GSA) has developed
a 2008-2009 Presidential Transition web site in consultation
with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

The Presidential Transition Act of 2000 (P.L. 106-293) 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."

The site includes leadership publications, nominee and
appointee guidance, and other material on the U.S.
government and presidential transition and inauguration.
