By Philip Rucker
President-elect Barack Obama rounded out his transition team today, unveiling more than 100 officials who will lead Obama's review of federal agencies.
The overall agency review process will be co-chaired by: Melody Barnes, a senior domestic policy advisor to Obama's campaign and previously executive vice president for policy at the Center for American Progress; Lisa Brown, executive director of the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy and a former counsel to Vice President Al Gore; and Don Gips, a former chief domestic policy advisor to Gore and a group vice president of global corporate development at Level 3 Communications.
The working group teams are divided into subject areas: economics and international trade; national security; justice and civil rights; energy and natural resources; education and labor; health and human services; science, technology, space and arts; executive office of the president; government operations; and transportation.
Transition co-chair John Podesta said in a news conference this week that transition officials will begin work in most federal agencies on Monday.
A complete list of officials and their biographies is available on Obama's transition Web site.
