Joe Biden's transition team on Tuesday announced the teams of people who will work to prepare the incoming administration to take control of the federal government, even as outgoing President Donald Trump and his administration fight the election results and decline to give access to the incoming President-elect's team.

(CNN)Joe Biden's transition team on Tuesday announced the teams of people who will work to prepare the incoming administration to take control of the federal government, even as outgoing President Donald Trump and his administration fight the election results and decline to give access to the incoming President-elect's team.

The announcement comes as Biden looks to project confidence about the work his transition team can do without Trump conceding the race or taking the required steps to begin the process of transitioning power from one administration to another.

The first, and most important step, is a formal determination from the General Services Administration, which would unfreeze more than $6 million in funding to Biden's transition team.

The Biden transition posted the names of roughly 500 people who will work with the different government agencies -- ranging from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to the Department of Homeland Security and the United States Postal Service -- to their website on Tuesday.

These people would, during a more traditional transition, work with career officials inside government to prepare a Biden administration to take over.

"Once the GSA Administrator ascertains the results of the election, the ART members will work directly with staff in federal agencies to ensure that the incoming Biden-Harris administration is able to effectively achieve the policy goals of the President and Vice President-elect," the statement said.

Biden said on Tuesday that he was not worried about how long it was taking the Trump-led General Services Administration to ascertain the results of the election but said Trump's denial was an "embarrassment. "
