Pentagon to begin providing support for power transition plan ‘immediately’ as Biden gets access to briefings & funding


The US Department of Defense said it would begin working with the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris transition team to facilitate a transfer of power after the General Services Administration gave a green light to initiate the process.

“The Department has received notice that pursuant to the Presidential Transition Act, the GSA Administrator is making certain post-election resources and services available to the Biden-Harris Transition Team,” Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough said in a statement on Monday night, adding that the agency would start supporting the administration handoff “immediately.”

The DoD Transition Task Force will arrange and coordinate all DoD contact with the Biden-Harris team.

Earlier on Monday, GSA head Emily Murphy signed the official “letter of ascertainment,” which gives the new president-elect access to transition funds and high-level security briefings, among other things. Though Murphy refrained from signing the letter for some time amid a spate of legal challenges from President Donald Trump, who’s repeatedly charged widespread voter fraud in the November 3 election, she reversed course some two weeks after the race.
