December 4, 2000
Mr. Chairman and members of the Subcommittee, I thank you for
inviting me here today to
discuss the implementation of the Presidential Transition Act. Given the
November 7, 2000, we do not know who the next President will be.
Nonetheless, much work has already
been done, and we are ready to ensure that a smooth transition from this
Administration to the
President-elect, whoever that may be, will occur.
The Presidential Transition Act (Act) provides for an efficient
transfer of authority from one
Administration to the next and outlines specific roles for a number of
including the General Services Administration (GSA), the Office of
Personnel Management, the
Office of Presidential Personnel, and the U.S. Archivist.
