Feb. 7 last day on the job for Borras

Rafael Borras

Homeland Security Undersecretary of Management Rafael Borras' last day at the department will be Feb. 7.

In an internal DHS email dated Feb. 4 obtained by FCW, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said Borras will depart Friday, capping four years of service in various leadership positions. Deputy Undersecretary Chris Cummiskey will serve as acting undersecretary for management beginning Feb.10, Johnson said.

Government and industry sources contacted by FCW the week of Jan. 27 said Borras would step down the week of Feb. 3 to pursue interests in the private sector.

"I want to personally thank Rafael for his incredible service to the Department. He has provided valuable leadership to DHS as both the Under Secretary for Management and as Acting Deputy Secretary," said Johnson's department-wide email.
