Elaine Duke has been named the first deputy undersecretary for management at the Homeland Security Department, DHS announced today.

In the new role, she will be responsible for daily oversight of DHS’ budget, appropriations, expenditure of funds, procurement, human resources, information technology systems, and facilities and property management.

The move comes after Paul Schneider, DHS' former undersecretary for management, was tapped to be acting deputy undersecretary for the entire agency, replacing former Deputy Secretary Michael Jackson, who stepped down last week.

Duke had been the agency’s chief procurement officer, managing $14 billion in DHS contracts and $11 billion in financial assistance programs.
