Guess it depends a whole lot on the “legal” definition of Lobbying. If the definition includes offering written opinion, then as long as the SOP caveat is offered then suspect your place of employment has little or no restriction. If one’s definition includes testifying IMO that any government employee can and in fact do testify. If the definition includes taking a congress to lunch or someother gift, suspect that some additional rules would need to apply
