On August 1, the federal government will officially offer assistance to both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s presidential transition teams. This support signals the importance of pre-election transition planning, and will help the two candidates prepare to govern and fulfill campaign promises if elected.
Besides providing fully furnished and equipped office space, the General Services Administration will offer additional transition support, including communication services, briefings and assistance to enable the candidates to prepare to govern even as they simultaneously campaign vigorously to win the presidency.
The bipartisan Pre-Election Presidential Transition Act of 2010 authorizes the government to provide the major party candidates with work space and services immediately following the political party nominating conventions.
