Ready to Govern: Improving the Presidential Transition
Wednesday, May 29, 2013

The Partnership for Public Service held a conversation on the importance of pre-election presidential transition planning and lessons learned in 2012 with former Gov. Michael Leavitt, who chaired Mitt Romney’s presidential transition team; Chris Liddell, who served as the executive director; and Chris Lu, who served as the executive director of the Obama 2008 transition. During the discussion, they shared their experiences and observations in the hope that they may be helpful for future presidential transition teams of both parties. Additionally, the Romney presidential transition team released “Romney Readiness Project 2012: Retrospective & Lessons Learned,” a book chronicling the decisions, deadlines and daily operations of Romney’s transition organization.

The Romney Readiness Project was the first transition organization to operate under The Pre-Election Presidential Transition Act of 2010, a law that included major recommendations from the Partnership. The Partnership called on Congress to make major fixes to the presidential transition process in its “Ready to Govern: Improving the Presidential Transition” report released in January 2010. The recommendations included starting the transition process earlier, providing campaigns with support and making the process more transparent so there is no longer a stigma on preparing to govern.

 

The Partnership for Public Service is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to revitalize our federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works.
