Biden Campaign, Trump Admin Sign Transition Memorandum: GSA

President Donald Trumps administration and Democratic nominee Joe Bidens team signed a memorandum of understanding with the General Services Administration (GSA) to start a potential handover of power.

A spokesperson for the GSA, an independent agency, confirmed the two parties signed the memorandum on Thursday, according to The Associated Press.

The memorandum is required under the 1963 Presidential Transition Act that helps ensure a smooth transition of power.

A spokesperson for the agency told AP that the memorandum is expected to be published on the GSAs Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) section next week.

According to a White House document published earlier this year (pdf), “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. The activities required by the Act are also helpful to prepare for leadership transitions that occur between the first and second terms of Administrations.”
