Rafael Borras, undersecretary for management at the Department of Homeland Security, will leave DHS on Feb. 7 and plans to return to the private sector, Federal News Radio reported Friday.

Jason Miller writes that Chris Cummiskey will serve in that role on an acting basis, which would continue his time in that position since September, when Borras became acting deputy homeland security secretary.

Borras has held the undersecretary position for three years and oversaw the department’s work to get an unqualified financial audit opinion in November, the station reports.

According to FCW, Borras also functioned as the department’s designated chief management officer and chief acquisition officer, where he held oversight of an estimated $60 billion budget.

He also administered $19 billion in procurement work at DHS, Mark Rockwell reports.
