The chief financial officer of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority is resigning to take a job in the private sector, according to a memo Metro General Manager Richard Sarles distributed to agency staff today. Carol Kissal's exit comes weeks after a draft federal audit found serious mismanagement of federal grant dollars at Metro. The memo makes no mention of the audit but praises Kissal's work over recent years.

Sarles will soon announce an organizational shakeup, according to the memo. The Metro's board ordered changes in the wake of the federal audit.
