DHS' Maner to step down this spring

Andy Maner, the Homeland Security Department's chief financial officer, announced his plans to resign as of March 3, the department announced today.

Maner led DHS' project to weave together a welter of financial systems to develop means of accessing unified accounting information. That project is not yet complete.

DHS earlier announced an enterprise resource planning system project, known as Emerge2, that would complete the consolidation project, but that work now is being realigned.

Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff praised Maner, saying, 'Over the past four years Andy has made several lasting contributions to homeland security, including creating U.S. Customs and Border Protection's One Face at the Border, setting up departmentwide systems to consolidate financial data and strengthening controls against fiscal waste, fraud and abuse.

'Andy is the consummate professional and dedicated public servant,' Chertoff said in a statement. 'He faced and overcame tremendous challenges associated with standing up the department, and we are stronger today because of his efforts.'
