Cedric Sims leaving DHS

Homeland Security Department management executive Cedric Sims announced on April 17 he is leaving the department to join a consulting firm.

Sims currently is director of program accountability and risk management at DHS, reporting to Rafael Borras, undersecretary of management.

Sims joined DHS in May 2009 to serve as executive director of the enterprise business management office in the Office of the Chief Information Officer.

He will be joining the Evermay Consulting Group Inc. in early May, said Greg Rothwell, president of Evermay.

Previously, Sims served at the U.S. Secret Service from 2001 until 2009, including assignments as branch chief of network management, DHS senior infrastructure officer and in interagency communications roles at the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, G8 Summit in Sea Island and several United Nations General Assemblies.

He has bachelor’s degrees in computer science and journalism from Texas A&M University, where he also earned a doctorate in engineering.

Once he becomes a consultant, Sims hopes to continue helping DHS and other federal agencies improve their systems. “I feel I still will be able to provide support to government agencies with solutions that align with their missions,” he told Federal Computer Week.
