Lee Holcomb, the Homeland Security Departmentâ€™s longtime chief technology officer, yesterday informed federal CIOs via a memo that he plans to retire from the federal government June 30, the department said.
Holcomb wrote that he was considering employment options in the private sector, and that he planned to continue working in the federal IT arena.
Holcomb came to the homeland security technology organization from his job as CIO of NASA in mid-2002. His homeland security assignment at that time was planned for a detail of six months to a year.
His many tasks at the DHS CIO organization have included leading the design of the departmentâ€™s enterprise architecture.
