Strategic Plan

In accordance with the SMART Act (HB10-1119), the Department of Personnel & Administration assembles the Department's strategic plan each year. This strategic plan represents a considerable effort undertaken by the DPA leadership team to prioritize and focus the Department's efforts and resources on the functions that will provide the greatest service to our customers and the citizens of Colorado. It is important to note that the strategic plan represents a living document that, like any other, can only be improved through ongoing scrutiny and revision. As a result, the Department is continuing to refine the information presented within the strategic plan.

Wildly Important Goals

The Department of Personnel & Administration identified several wildly important goals (WIG) for FY 2020-21 and beyond. The Governor's Dashboard provides a summary of our progress on these initiatives so far.

Priority I. Reduce State’s physical footprint

Successful completion of this goal will lead to better space utilization in the employee work environments and a reduction in the amount of space the State needs.  This will provide diverse workplace options for state agencies as well as financial savings.

Successful completion of this goal will help to ensure the State retains and recruits a diverse, talented workforce that reflects the community it serves. Additionally, the State will continue to increase its nondiscriminatory practices and provide equitable opportunity for employment and advancement in all State departments, programs, services, and worksites.
