The now-former director of IT policy and compliance at the Department of Homeland Security, Richard Young, has begun a new job as CIO of an international program agency within the Department of Agriculture.

An Agriculture Department spokesperson said Young is now CIO of the department's Foreign Agricultural Service. The FAS manages USDA's overseas programs, such as market development, international trade agreements and negotiations, and the collection of statistics and market information. It also administers USDA's export credit guarantee and food aid programs.

Young reports to FAS Associate Administrator and Chief Operating Officer Bryce Quick. The FAS CIO slot was a vacant position before Young started, the USDA spokesperson said.
