Heidi Grant, director of the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), will step down from her role and transition out of the federal government.
She has served as DSCA's director since August 2020 and has contributed 32 years of service to the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, Joint Staff and other Department of Defense components, DSCA said Tuesday.
Jed Royal, deputy director of DSCA, will take over Grant's duties on an acting basis, effective Nov. 7th. Grant, who was a member of the senior executive service for 19 years, helped the agency implement a new organizational model over a span of 15 months.
The new organizational model is designed to boost DSCA's operational efficiency and capacity to meet stakeholder requirements in support of the country and international partners.
