Brigati, who formerly served as the general counsel and director of strategic initiatives for the National Academy of Public Administration, will replace Giancarlo Brizzi, who previously held the role in acting capacity.

Brigati will lead policymaking guidance on the governmentwide management of technology, travel and transportation, property and various administrative services, meshing federal law, executive orders and regulatory information with potential mechanisms for reform.

Recently, the Office of Governmentwide Policy has coordinated collaborative efforts among federal agencies, private-sector companies and other stakeholders around tech-driven initiatives like the Data Center Optimization Initiative.
