Nick Nayak is set to return to the Internal Revenue Service as chief procurement officer, Federal Times reported Friday.
Jill Aitoro writes Nayak will succeed David Dasher, who will take the role of CPO at the First Responder Network Authority within the Commerce Department.
Nayak departed his public sector service in July 2014 after serving almost four years as CPO at the Department of Homeland Security, according to the report.
Prior to joining DHS, he worked for 14 years at IRS, most recently as deputy director within the Office of Procurement and deputy director of the IRS’ Office of Information Technology Acquisition prior to that.
From January 1990 to January 1991, he served as a grant and contract specialist at the National Science Foundation.
Nayak previously worked in the private sector, having served as a cost estimator and analyst at Frank E. Basil Inc. and as a contract administrator at EG&G Washington Analytical Services.
