Monument beefs up its tech practice

MONUMENT ADDS CYBER, PROCUREMENT LOBBYIST: Monument Advocacy has added Omid Ghaffari-Tabrizi as a principal, bringing more cyber and federal procurement chops to the firm’s tech practice as Washington grapples with issues like cybersecurity and privacy, as well as AI and machine learning. He most recently served as the head of cloud policy at the Internet Association. Before that Ghaffari-Tabrizi spent several years with the General Services Administration’s department Technology Transformation Services, including leadership roles at digital services agency 18F, and the IT Modernization Centers of Excellence. In an interview Ghaffari-Tabrizi said that he will be registering to lobby, and expects to make an impact with his expertise especially with IT modernization issues so the firm can “have more fully fleshed out arguments that we make in these different areas.”
