Each incoming administration faces a plethora of campaign promises and still-unknown challenges in national and homeland security, law enforcement, healthcare, and benefits management. While refocusing and executive action will address some challenges, most will require a more sustained effort that mixes new policies, capabilities, and cultural changes. Stimulating and coordinating the nation’s technological innovation community is likely a critical component of the Trump administration’s plan. This series highlights key science and technology (S&T) ecosystem opportunities that will help incoming appointees succeed.

Note: Transition of power after a Presidential election is complicated; preparing the federal government for a seamless shift to a new administration is crucial to continuing important work on behalf of the American people. MITRE will inform this transition by sharing our insights and experiences with those involved in transition planning and with leaders in the next administration. Our recommendations derive from the ongoing, practical guidance we provide our federal agency sponsors as they face critical national challenges.

This paper is part of a collection provided to our government sponsors; it supports MITRE’s focus on assisting new administration and career civil service leaders through the transition and beyond to achieve results that matter. To view all the papers in the collection, use the "Federal Transition" link in Topics, above.
