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. Employer of Choice

Successful completion of this goal will mean state agencies have strengthened equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) among their workforces and in their interactions with the communities they serve. To achieve our goal of recognizing, embracing, and celebrating all identities and abilities, the State of Colorado is committed to working together and leading the nation in (EDI) efforts.

Priority II. Innovation & Efficiency

Successful completion of this goal will result in appropriate allocation of federal funds to state agencies in order to realize the monetary relief intended by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. To achieve our goal the Office of the State Controller (OSC) will ensure proper draw of the federal money into the state's bank, set up the appropriation in the state's financial system, issue guidance on the proper expenditure of the funds, and certifying likely hundreds of ARPA recipients and subrecipients to state agencies to support our economic recovery efforts.

Priority III. Energy & Renewables

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

Priority IV. Energy & Renewables

In alignment with Governor Polis's priority to set Colorado on a path to 100% renewable energy by 2040, successful completion of this goal will reduce greenhouse emissions by state fleet vehicles by expanding the number of electric vehicles while also implementing and studying the supporting infrastructure.
