About this Item

199, [1] pages. Footnotes. Illustrations. Presidential Transition Guide and Timeline: The transition timeline is segmented into specific workstreams-for the incoming administration, the outgoing administration and current federal agency staff. the Center organized the work by month with specific recommendations and related tools and resources, so transition stakeholders can jumpstart their work. The Presidential Transition Guide provides an in-depth view of the entire presidential transition process. This guide is a collection of decision points and approaches to presidential transition planning and execution, and to gather lessons learned and best practices from prior recent transitions of both political parties. The Partnership for Public Service is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization based in Washington, D.C. whose mission is to inspire a new generation of civil servants and transform the way government works. Two of the Partnership's most visible programs are the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals, which honor outstanding federal employees for exceptional civil service, and the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government Rankings, an annual survey that ranks federal agencies based on employee satisfaction. The Partnership is led by President and CEO Max Stier. The Partnership was founded by New York businessman Samuel J. Heyman in 2001 on the premise that: "Building, energizing and maintaining a high-quality workforce is the key to success for any organization - and the federal government is no different". Heyman founded the group in 2001 with a gift of $25-million. In 2006, he committed an additional $20-million over the next five years.Heyman began his career at the Justice Department under Robert F. Kennedy after graduating from Harvard Law in 1963. Many years after his move into the private sector, Heyman created the Partnership in an effort to reestablish public service as a desirable career and to attract talent into the federal workforce. In 2005, the Partnership merged with the Private Sector Council - an organization founded by David Packard in 1983, which engages the expertise of the private sector to improve the business of government by connecting experts from America's top corporations with federal leaders. In February 2009, the Partnership absorbed the majority of the Council for Excellence in Government, another D.C. based good-government group who had ceased operations after 25 years due to the poor economy. The Partnership took over the Excellence in Government Fellows, Strategic Advisors to Government Executives and Public Service Recognition Week programs from the Council.
