Blockchain innovator. Arrieta brought the first blockchain-powered procurement solution to government. He worked with 11 operating divisions across HHS to collect information from five contract-writing systems that handle more than 100,000 contract actions a year and combined the information into a single data layer. Within six months, he had achieved an authority to operate for the solution — the first ATO for blockchain in government — and completed a $3 million business plan. His work through ACT-IAC and HHS has inspired other agencies to think about how blockchain-layered microservices can be incorporated into their own operations.
