Employee and Contractor Badge Requests

State Employee ID Badge Program
Fast, inexpensive, convenient and secure, the State ID Badge Program is designed to meet the needs of state employees, their managers, authorized HR representatives, and independent state contractors. The State ID Badge Program allows easy access to state facilities and accommodates agencies’ needs to provide access to secure areas.

Badge Application Process

State Employees
Only HR Representatives and their delegates can access the official State ID Badge website to request employee badges. To obtain a State Employee ID Badge:

  1. Contact your agency HR Representative to request an ID Badge.

  2. Within 24 hours, the HR Representative will receive an email confirmation authorizing the ID badge.

  3. Bring a copy of the e-mail confirmation and a picture ID to 1525 Sherman St, room #B15 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on weekdays to obtain your badge. The badge program is closed for lunch between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m.; no badges will be issued during this time.

Contractors that are required by a state agency to obtain an ID badge must have passed a background check within the previous six months. 

Standard contractor ID badges are $3.00 each. Contractor access badges allow contractors to gain entry to approved state facilities with a simple swipe of the badge against a card reader; these access badges cost $10.00 each. If the contractor is liable for the cost of the badge, they must pay with cash or check upon receipt of the badge. If the contracting agency is going to cover the cost of the badge, it will be included in the monthly ID Badge billing, and the agency will be charged via IT.

Secure Access Codes
If a contractor needs a code to access a state building, an Application for Security Access Code should be completed and submitted to the Colorado State Patrol. Forms are also available by calling 303-866-3660.

Human Resource Representatives
Only HR Representatives and their delegates can request ID Badges for employees. By submitting a request, the authorized individual grants permission to Capitol Complex Facility Management to issue an ID Badge to a current and valid state employee who has passed a background check. 

To delegate an employee to act as an authorized agency representative, e-mail the following information to the ID Badge Administrator:

  • Agency Name

  • Agency Code

  • New Delegate's First and Last Name

  • Office Address

  • New Delegate's Phone Number and Email Address
