The transition is responsible for ensuring that the transfer of power between the current administration and the Biden-Harris administration is successful. Led by President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, co-chairs, a diverse advisory board, and respected leaders and staff from across sectors, the transition team is preparing to help President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris meet the urgent challenges facing our nation on Day One.
A Biden-Harris administration, propelled by the foundation laid by the transition, will lead a just and equitable recovery that rebuilds a strong, inclusive middle class and builds an economy for the future.
Our nation is grappling with a pandemic, an economic crisis, powerful calls for racial justice, and the existential threat of climate change. President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris know we can’t simply go back to the way things were before. The team being assembled will meet these challenges on Day One and build us back better.
The transition team is focused on building infrastructure and planning for the next administration. The efforts of the transition focus on determining implementation options for policy, developing management agendas for federal agencies, and selecting personnel to serve in the administration.
The transition — like the Biden-Harris administration to follow — will prioritize the following core values: diversity of ideology and background; talent to address society’s most complex challenges; integrity and the highest ethical standards to serve the American people and not special interests; and transparency to garner trust at every stage. These are principles that President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris have modeled throughout their entire careers, and they are the principles that will guide their work to restore the American people’s faith in our government.
Once sworn into office, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will provide the much-needed national leadership to tackle the pandemic and begin our nation’s recovery.
The Biden-Harris Transition will use this site to provide key updates and introduce the public to individuals who have been nominated and selected to serve in the administration, and lead our national recovery. Together, we will build back better and restore the soul of our nation.
