Just days ahead of a statutory deadline on Friday, the Trump administration on Monday released guidance for agencies to begin planning for a potential presidential transition next year.
“The Presidential Transition Act promotes the orderly transfer of executive powers in connection with the expiration of the term of office of a president and the inauguration of a new president,” wrote Acting OMB Director Russell Vought. “The activities required by the act are also helpful to prepare for leadership transitions that occur between the first and second terms of administrations.”
