Bush to nominate consultant as DHS undersecretary of management

President Bush will tap independent consultant Paul Schneider to become the Homeland Security Department's undersecretary for management.

If approved by the Senate, Schneider will replace Scott Charbo, who has been in the position in an acting capacity since Janet Hale resigned earlier this year.

Charbo also is the agency's CIO.

Before becoming a consultant, Schneider served as an acquisition executive at the National Security Agency and, before that, as principal deputy assistant secretary of the Navy.

Schneider received his bachelor's degree from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.
