The Partnership for Public Service’s Center for Presidential Transition is the nation’s premier nonpartisan source of information and resources designed to help presidential candidates and their teams lay the groundwork for a new administration or for a president’s second term.
The Center provides critical assistance on how to organize and execute a transition; helps agency career executives prepare for new political leadership; offers guidance to political appointees on the unique aspects of government leadership; and engages with Congress to promote transition reforms. In addition, the Center offers insights to help incumbent presidents prepare for a second term and advice on the steps needed for a smooth transfer of power in the event that a new president is elected.
The federal government is our nation’s most important democratic institution for collective action. It is through the federal government that we, as a nation, confront our most pressing problems, from national security to food safety to global competitiveness. We need our government to be effective, efficient and responsive to the evolving needs of the American people.
The Partnership for Public Service is the only nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to achieving a more effective and innovative government for our country. Not bigger or smaller government, just smarter. We do so by focusing our efforts on improving the leadership capacity of our federal agencies and the systems that support them.
