“CORE will help Colorado departments and agencies reach new levels of efficiency and effectiveness,” Kathy Nesbitt, Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Personnel & Administration said. “It’s a transformative solution that will serve our citizens for years to come and I applaud the outstanding work of our state team and CGI.”
