CIO wanted at FEMA

sign now hiring

Rumors continue to swirl about the status of Department of Homeland Security Chief Information Officer Richard Spires, who recently went on leave without explanation.

It turns out, the department is definitely searching for a CIO. It just happens to be for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, not DHS overall.

USAJobs continues to advertise the position, currently held by acting CIO Rob Thomas II, who took over in February.

The position pays between $119,000 and $179,000 per year, and the ad says it will remain open through May 6.
