Funding the presidential transition

Presidential transition donations and disbursements are not regulated by the FEC. Expenses are paid by the General Services Administration (GSA) with taxpayer funds under the Presidential Transition Acts (PTA) of 1963 and 2015.

The PTA also permits donations for transition-related expenses. These donations are limited to $5,000 from any person, organization or other entity. A report filed with the GSA by the presidential transition organization discloses the date, source and amount of private donations within 30 days after the inauguration.
