Personnel & Administration

Our vision is to be the leader in service excellence
The mission of the Department of Personnel & Administration is to provide quality services to enhance State government success through improved customer service, modernized business operations, and investment in the workforce.
The Department of Personnel & Administration (DPA) provides State government agencies and institutions the ability to focus their limited resources toward the efficient and effective delivery of services to the citizens of Colorado. DPA performs core functions that provide the infrastructure, processes, services, guidance, and tools necessary to help eliminate redundancy in State government and minimize costs. The Department seeks to be the State’s leader in service excellence by offering quality services that enhance the success of Colorado State government. The Department aligns itself with the Governor’s overall goal of executing effective, efficient, and elegant solutions to the challenges that face the State and its citizens. The expansive knowledge base and core principles of integrity and accountability guide DPA’s day-to-day operations and ensure its staff is equipped to “do the right thing.”
The Department collaborates with employees, agencies and institutions, vendors, and citizens to develop innovative ways to provide cost-effective solutions that further the State’s ability to conduct its business. These solutions lessen the burden and complexity of doing business, and allow the Department to engage its customers and exceed their expectations at every step.
