revolving door

The Internal Revenue Service has tapped the Homeland Security Department’s chief financial officer to become its new deputy commissioner for operations support.

On Nov. 4, Peggy Sherry will move to the IRS to oversee the 11,500 employees in that agency’s IT operations, as well as its Human Capital Office, procurement, real estate, physical security, employee assistance and operations that watch over sensitive taxpayer information.

Sherry will replace Beth Tucker, who is retiring.

DHS confirmed that its budget director, Chip Fulghum, will become interim CFO there on Nov. 4.

Sherry was named DHS CFO in April 2012, after serving as acting and deputy CFO from 2008 to 2012. She also formerly served as deputy CFO and financial reports supervisor for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and as an assistant director at the Government Accountability Office.
