Spotlight on the State of Colorado's IT Directors

The Governor’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) serves the executive branch agencies and by extension, the residents of Colorado. OIT employs more than 900 people at 71 locations across the state. Together, we provide IT infrastructure, service desk and deskside support, network services, telecommunication tools, cloud computing, application development and support, and provisioning for more than 28,000 state agency employees across 1,300 locations. We also serve Colorado first responders via the public safety communications network, and our security team proactively protects the state’s information systems and data for all three branches of state government.

An integral role that bridges the relationship between OIT and our many customer agencies is that of our IT directors. These leaders work at each agency to ensure strategic alignment of agency needs and OIT services, understand agency mission and objectives, build positive and productive relationships with agency executive staff, and lead collaborative efforts across OIT to deliver IT services. They understand the big picture and are able to explain the end-to-end impact that our services and solutions will have on our customers.

Working as an IT director is no small task, and we appreciate the support and hard work of these 12 individuals every single day. Learn more about our IT directors in our new video below. You can also see a list of who we serve on our website.
