Disaster Recovery

Enterprise Facility for Operational Recovery, Readiness Response & Transition (eFOR3T)

eFOR3T is an enterprise-level, state-of-the-art Tier III disaster recovery facility offering state agencies and government entities an alternative, voluntary solution for their business continuity and disaster recover practices. Participating member agencies enjoy a secure, professionally managed facility that includes space, power and connectivity to operate their own information technology equipment.


From its inception in 2006 and until July 2010, eFOR3T was operated under the provisions of a cooperative agreement between the Colorado Secretary of State's Office (SOS) and participating agencies.  With the passage of Senate Bill 10-148, the operational authority of the eFORT facility was transferred from the Secretary of State to OIT effective July 1, 2010. SB10-148 also provides a four-year transition for the funding of the facility from SOS to OIT.
