Richard Spires resigns from DHS CIO post
Tuesday - 5/7/2013, 5:49pm EDT
In an email obtained by Federal News Radio, Spires wrote to DHS staff: "It has been a privilege to work with such a stellar group of public servants to support such important missions. I have served as the Department's CIO for more than 3 1/2 half years, and I take pride in working with you to have IT more effectively support the Homeland Security missions and business as we also have worked to more efficiently deliver our services. I have learned much from you and I will miss you."
Spires has been on administrative leave from DHS since March 15 and the subject of several rumors as to the reason why.
Spires has been CIO at the DHS since September 2009 and was the co-chairman of the CIO Council. He also worked at the IRS, where he led the business systems modernization program.
Margie Graves has been acting CIO since Spires went on leave.
