DHS Undersecretary Janet Hale resigns

Filed under: DHS News,Organizational Issues — by Christian Beckner on March 22, 2006

From a statement by Sec. Chertoff released by DHS within the last hour:

Janet Hale announced today her intention to resign as Under Secretary for Management at the Department of Homeland Security, effective in early May. She is a pioneer in the department and has led the merger of core management and budget functions of 22 distinct components into a unified structure that is based in discipline and integrity.

Janet’s remarkable dedication to this department has led the way for a 21st Century human resource system, fully integrated information technology architecture, a financial management structure with accountability, and a successful strategic procurement program.

I commend her for the immense sacrifices she made to meet the extraordinary demands of her position, and I thank Janet for her great service to our country and lasting contributions to this department.
