Free and low-cost, digital government solutions without RFPs
Utilizing digital government solutions to connect citizens with Colorado government is at the heart of the partnership among Colorado Interactive (CI), the Statewide Internet Portal Authority (SIPA) and NIC. Although new services start with SIPA, all three entities serve an instrumental role in delivering on the mission:

Colorado Interactive (CI) is the team behind the official website of the state of Colorado (https://www.colorado.gov) and is overseen by the Statewide Internet Portal Authority. The portal operates through a public-private partnership between the state and CI to help Colorado government entities web-enable their services.
