Rafael Borras, management undersecretary at the Department of Homeland Security, has been appointed acting deputy secretary, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

Jason Miller writes the move comes amid delays in the Senate confirmation of Alexander Mayorkas, the presidential nominee to the post.

Borras succeeds Rand Beers, who stepped up to the role in May following Jane Holl Lute’s resignation.

Miller reports Borras spent more than three years as DHS undersecretary of management and focused on worker morale, program performance, risk assessment and financial management systems.

His deputy, Chris Cumminskey, will become acting undersecretary for management.
