The Department received a notification about the decision of the head of the Office of General Affairs of the US administration, Emily Murphy, to grant the Democrat transition team access to “certain resources and services.”
The Pentagon will immediately begin implementing measures as part of the transfer of power to the new administration. This follows from a statement issued on Monday by the US Defense Department.
According to the document, the Ministry received notification of the decision of the head of the Office of General administration (GSA) of the United States, Emily Murphy, to grant the transition team of Democrat Joseph Biden access to “certain resources and services” necessary to begin the transfer of power in the country. “Today (Monday) in the evening, the team of Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris <…> contacted the Department of defense and based on the conclusion of the head of the Office of General Affairs of the US administration, we will immediately begin implementing our plan to provide support by the Charter, Pentagon policy and the Memorandum of understanding between the White House and the Biden and Harris team,” the statement said.
“The Pentagon’s transition task force will organize and coordinate all defense Department contacts with the Biden and Harris team. The Pentagon is ready to provide services and support [related to the period] after the election in a professional, orderly and effective manner that meets the expectations of the public,” the US Department stressed.
Following American law, the GSA head must make an official conclusion about who is the President-elect.
