(CNN)The former head of the General Services Administration during the 2000 election said Thursday that he would ascertain the 2020 results and begin the formal transition to a Joe Biden presidency, which the current administrator has yet to do.

"To me, it's clear that we should be recognizing Joe Biden as the President-elect," David Barram, the former GSA administrator appointed by Bill Clinton, told CNN's John Berman on "New Day. "

The current GSA administrator, Emily Murphy, still has yet to acknowledge Biden's victory -- as President Donald Trump refuses to concede -- and sign a letter to release funds to the Biden transition team through a process called ascertainment.

Barram had eventually ascertained Bush as the 2000 election winner after the Supreme Court ended the Florida recount.
