Political Appointee Tracker

The Post and Partnership for Public Service, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, are tracking roughly 600 key executive branch nominations through the confirmation process. These positions include Cabinet secretaries, deputy and assistant secretaries, chief financial officers, general counsel, heads of agencies, ambassadors and other critical leadership positions. These are a portion of the roughly 1,200 positions that require Senate confirmation.

The Senate can only act on nominations that have been formally submitted by the Trump administration. Those marked “awaiting nomination” above have been announced but not yet submitted, while those marked “formally nominated” are awaiting action by the Senate.

* Totals include some posts that are not being tracked as ‘key positions’ in the appointee database. Sam Clovis is not yet included in the failed nomination count, as he has not been formally withdrawn.

** The Senate returned all of George W. Bush’s pending nominations before its August recess.

Note: Judiciary and non-civilian positions are excluded

Trump’s entire Cabinet is now confirmed
