Colorado Broadband Office
The Colorado Broadband Office leads a statewide effort to expand broadband coverage and quality for all Coloradans. Access to affordable and reliable broadband service is critical to advancing Colorado’s economic growth and competitiveness. High-speed broadband creates new jobs and attracts new industries, expands markets for new and existing businesses, enables better access to educational opportunities and resources, facilitates the delivery of healthcare services, and supports public safety. Broader deployment of broadband infrastructure and services will improve the quality of life for Coloradans and support the state’s global economic competitiveness.
Colorado Digital Service
The Colorado Digital Service is a diverse, cross-functional team of senior engineers, designers, product managers and procurement specialists serving limited "tours of civic service" in government. They work alongside dedicated civil servants in OIT and across state agencies to develop and improve user-centered solutions to Colorado's most pressing technical challenges. Learn more
Colorado Benefits Management System (CBMS)
The Colorado Benefits Management System (CBMS) is Colorado’s statewide database system through which eligibility is determined for medical, food, cash and other assistance programs. In concert with the Program Eligibility & Application Kit (PEAK), where Coloradans screen and apply for assistance online, more than two million individual cases have been worked through CBMS, signifying the vast impact of the system.

GIS Coordination & Development Program
We realize the full value of geographic information systems by making access to comprehensive data, including broadband service data, seamless and formatted in a way that maximizes its benefit to decision-making in the state. We are a place where Coloradans can gain answers and expertise about GIS and its possibilities in order to expand the value of these technologies as efficiently and effectively as possible, and we are the facilitator of a robust GIS community where knowledge and information is shared freely.
IT Transformation Program
The Governor has asked OIT to lead and collaborate with agency partners on a statewide, multi-year IT Transformation journey. IT Transformation extends beyond technology alone. It empowers state agencies to drive IT decisions based on their individual business needs. The culmination of this effort will transform statewide IT operations and service delivery with ever-expanding access to secure, virtual government services for all Coloradans.

DTRS has become the primary method for mission-critical public safety communications across the state.
Technology Accessibility Program
The Technology Accessibility Program (TAP) was created to help state agencies to provide equal access to state services, programs or activities. OIT, through TAP, gives state agencies tools and resources to implement up-to-date accessibility best practices such as:
- OIT's Guide to Accessible Web Services
- TAP Open Office Hours from 9 a.m. — 10 a.m. on Tuesday & Thursday mornings (For state agency employees only)
- Monthly Accessibility Newsletter
- Digital Strategy Community of Practice Google Current (For state agency employees only)
OIT helps agencies take the first steps toward improving their services’ accessibility now, and keeping up to date with best practices as they continue to evolve.
