The 2020 Presidential Transition: How Well Did It Work?

The country was riveted by daily headlines during the post-election period, all the way through the first day of the Biden-Harris administration. But what was going on behind the scenes during the transition period? Did the statutory framework for the incoming and outgoing teams work? Was advice from prior transitions heeded? Are there lessons for future transitions?

Hear from several close observers and participants in the process, including:

Martha Kumar, presidential transition scholar

Ann Orr, Acting Director, Presidential Transition Project, Partnership for Public Service

Mary Gibert, Federal Transition Coordinator and Associate Administrator, General Services Administration

Christopher Lu, Former Member, Biden Transition Agency Review Team
