Change.gov offeres a one-stop-shop for Presidential Transition information
Change.gov offers the latest news, events, and announcements pertaining to the formation of the Obama Administration. The site offers press releases, information regarding the President-elect and his team, a blog, and interestingly enough, an online application for "non-career positions" in the Obama-Biden Administration. Now that's cool.
The site also has a link to the General Services Administration (GSA) Transition Directory, which was was authorized by the Presidential Transition Act of 2000 (P.L. 106-293) to develop a transition directory in consultation with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The Act 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." Senate Report 106-348 clarifies that the directory is intended to "assist in navigating the many responsibilities that fall on a new administration" that is "confronted by an overwhelming amount of material."
