A non-partisan consortium of public and private universities and other research organizations, the
White House Transition Project focuses on smoothing the transition of power in the American
Presidency. Its “Reports” series applies scholarship to specific problems identified by those who
have borne the responsibilities for governing. Its “Briefing” series uses extensive interviews with
practitioners from the past seven White Houses to produce institutional memories for most of the
primary offices in the West Wing operation of the presidency.
