Not sure if there is polling on this, but I’m guessing more than 90% of Americans have no idea what the Federal Government’s General Services Administration (GSA) is, or does. Nor would many Americans recognize the name of the GSA’s Administrator, Trump appointee Emily Murphy.
For the overwhelming majority of time, the GSA Administrator oversees a large federal agency that manages the government’s sprawling real estate. Thousands of office buildings and other facilities, from coast to coast.
In years where there will be a new President, however, the GSA Administrator plays a critical role in the Presidential Transition.
The Transition is, of course, the period of time between the election in November and the swearing-in of the new President in January
