Paul steps aside as PM-ISE

Kshemendra Paul

Add program manager for the Information Sharing Environment to the list of jobs the incoming Trump administration must fill.  But when a new PM-ISE is appointed, she or he won't have to look far for advice.

Kshemendra Paul, who has served as PM-ISE at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence since 2012, has resigned that politically appointed post and will be returning to the Senior Executive Service.  Paul shared the news in a Jan. 19 email to colleagues that was shared with FCW. 

Paul, who previously worked at the Department of Justice and the Office of Management and Budget, is a three-time Federal 100 award winner -- having been recognized once at each agency.  He did not share what his next job will be.

The Office of the PM-ISE is responsible for facilitating terrorism-related information sharing across federal, state, local, tribal and territorial agencies as well as with the private sector and foreign governments. Paul declared himself "proud of and humbled by our collective efforts" to establish an architecture for information sharing and promised that the mission remains "in good hands."

Steve Mabeus, who had been Principal Deputy at the Terrorist Screening Center, “will be coming on duty next week as the Deputy PM," Paul wrote, reporting to Lt. Gen.  John Bansemer in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
