Transportation Security Administration CIO Patrick Schambach earlier this month informed his staff that he will leave the federal government May 31.
TSA's leaders have not yet decided who will succeed Schambach, according to an official in his office.
Schambach announced his decision in a memo to TSA staff. He was one of the first 10 employees of TSA's systems management organization, which came into being with the agency in wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Before coming to TSA, Schambach was CIO and assistant director of science and technology at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. He joined ATF in 1996 after more than 24 years at the Secret Service, where he headed the IRM Division.
Schambach was an early adopter of seat management and outsourcing at both ATF and TSA.
