"Please indicate names of people serving in those roles and status (political or career)," the Trump team said in an email to the State Department obtained by Reuters, asking to identify staffers working on programs to counter extremism.
The Trump team sent a similar communication to the Department of Homeland Security, Reuters reported, citing three unnamed U.S. officials.
Trump's transition team has also asked the State Department for information on programs and jobs related to the promotion of gender equality, the New York Times reported last week.
The requests to the State Department follow reports that the Trump team previously sent a questionnaire to the Department of Energy asking to identify staffers working on programs related to climate change. The Energy Department rejected that request.
