Ted Kaufman, one of Biden’s longest-serving advisers, has tapped a half-dozen government veterans to work with him as part of a formal transition operation that has been established independent of the Biden campaign, officials involved with the process told NBC News.
Kaufman described the work as in “the very early stages,” and part of an effort to “ensure continuity of government during such a critical moment for our country.”
“The next president will confront an ongoing global health pandemic and inherit an economy in its worst shape since the Great Depression. No one will have taken office facing such daunting obstacles since Franklin Delano Roosevelt,” Kaufman said in a statement. “Joe Biden is prepared to meet these urgent challenges on the day he is sworn in as president, and begin the hard work of addressing the public health crisis and rebuilding an economy that puts working families first.”
As Biden’s appointed replacement in the Senate for two years after he resigned to become vice president, Kaufman helped write the legislation to formalize transition planning, imposing specific requirements both on the current administration and presidential candidates to take such steps. The legislation was informed by his work as part of the Obama-Biden transition team in 2008.
The Trump administration has quietly established its own Transition Council, led by chief of staff Mark Meadows. A separate Agency Transition Directors Council, led by officials from the Office and Budget and Management and the General Services Administration, was scheduled to hold its first meeting in late May.

He [ Ted Kaufman] said then he hoped Trump’s team would be as cooperative in managing a possible transition as President George W. Bush was for Obama.
“I doubt it, but I hope so,” he said
