Chris Cummiskey to Depart DHS on Oct. 31

DHS - ExecutiveMosaicChris Cummiskey, acting undersecretary for management at the Department of Homeland Security, has announced his departure from government service on Oct. 31, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

Cummiskey, who has served the federal government for 24 years, told his staff in an email that he will “pursue opportunities in the private sector,” Jason Miller writes.

Cummiskey previously served as deputy undersecretary for management for three years and as chief of staff to the management directorate for over a year before he succeeded Rafael Borras in February, according to the report.

He told office staff that DHS has moved on from the Government Accountability Office‘s high-risk list, the station reports.

“There is still work to be done, though, and I hope you will continue to respond to new challenges with the same commitment and dedication you have shown during my tenure,” Cummiskey said.

Miller writes the Senate could confirm Russell Deyo as the permanent undersecretary for management at DHS in November.
