Bi-Weekly Pay Initiative Update
The State of Colorado has been working to implement bi-weekly payroll over the last few months. The State continues to believe bi-weekly is the best structure for both employees and the State, and carries significant advantages over semi-monthly (twice a month) pay. However, the State of Colorado was unable to gain legislative approval. This means DMVA State Employees will not be moving to bi-weekly payroll in July or for the foreseeable future. Please contact Human Resources with questions you might have.
Annual Rate Increases Effective July 1, 2018
On May 25, the Governor's office extended a 3% base pay adjustment for all state employees, including non-classified positions. This change will be made effective July 1, 2018. Letters will be sent to employees mid-June announcing the change to their pay. Please contact Human Resources with any questions you have.
