Reimagining how we serve Coloradans...digitally

The next evolution of our collaborative effort to reimagine IT builds upon the foundational work of the IT Transformation Program and integrates two efforts formally introduced in 2022 that directly align with OIT’s WIGs and priorities: Technical Debt Remediation and Digital Government. With these short news "bytes," we will connect the dots between the past, present and future of technology in the State of Colorado. Thank you for being part of the journey.

When We Remediate Tech Debt, We All Win!

One of our major tech debt remediation projects is removing our IT infrastructure from the leased eFORT Data Center by January 2025. We have made tremendous progress in that work, evident in our reduced footprint. But there’s more!

We track energy usage through kWh (kilowatt hours) expended at the eFORT Data Center. And we have some great news! Our energy consumption has decreased as our footprint at eFORT continues to shrink. November 2023 marked the first time we have used less than 200,000 kWh monthly at eFORT! In December 2023, our energy consumption was even lower at 180,146 kWh. We will continue to save thousands of kWh of electricity each month as we work to move out of eFORT by early 2025. You can monitor our monthly energy consumption via the graph below, which can be viewed in detail by clicking this link.

Saving energy is always a good idea. Decreasing our electricity usage reduces air and water pollution and helps the planet. This project (and eliminating technical debt) is a win for all Coloradans!

CDPHE’s Medication Takeback Program Now Accessible on the myColorado App

Coloradans can now access information about the Medication Takeback program on myColorado™, an innovative and first-of-its-kind app that makes it easier for people to engage with state government and its services.

The program aims to help Coloradans properly dispose of unused medication to protect their loved ones and the environment. Proper disposal of medications prevents the potential for accidents and misuse, protecting children and teens from harm. Medications flushed down the toilet or thrown in the trash can contaminate water systems and threaten wildlife.

myColorado is available at the Apple App Store or on Google Play. Visit to learn more.

Advance Colorado Broadband Grant Program Announces Capital Projects Fund Awards

Earlier this month, Governor Polis announced the first of multiple investments using stimulus funding from the U.S. Treasury’s Capital Projects Fund (CPF) program. The Polis administration will use $113.5 million from CPF to make significant, long-term improvements, including expanding the state’s broadband infrastructure and connecting Colorado homes without internet access.

CPF will connect nearly 19,000 homes and businesses across all of Colorado. The biggest impact will be in the south and southwest parts of the state, where there is the largest number of unserved and underserved locations. Click the button below to see where the funding will go.
