“The MGT Act is a significant move towards bringing the government into the modern era of technology,” said Ali Reza Manouchehri, Executive Chair, MetroStar Systems. “With a goal of empowering agencies to modernize their legacy IT systems, it aligns beautifully with our commitment to providing secure, reliable, and efficient IT capabilities to the federal government.”
