Blockchain trailblazer. Arrieta has since moved to a new role at the Department of Health and Human Services, but at GSA he led the largest IT contract in the world.

As a result, the awards approval process dropped from 110 days to nine and the time to make contract modifications narrowed from 40 days to three.
