Trump team's agency work stalls over missing paperwork (NANCY COOK, 11/16/16, Politico)

The Trump transition team has not yet made contact with its counterparts in federal agencies because it hasn't filed the proper paperwork with the Obama administration -- a move that's causing a huge lag for Team Trump in setting up its government.

To get access to the agencies and receive briefings, the Trump transition needs to give the White House its code of ethics, a list of its transition team members and an acknowledgment that the team members have signed the code. None of this has been filed -- and it leaves the federal agencies in limbo, wondering and waiting when the new boss and his people will show up.
