About SIPA

SIPA is Government
In response to the Portal Plan in Senate Bill 03-336, Senate Bill 04-244 (C.R.S. § 24-37.7-101 et seq.) was passed and signed to create the Statewide Internet Portal Authority. SIPA was charged to create an efficient, effective, and user friendly statewide internet portal to serve as a place where citizens can electronically access state government information, products, and services, as well as provide e-Government services to state and local governments.

  • SIPA is governed by a Board of Directors  
  • The Board appoints an Executive Director to oversee daily operations, and to ensure the goals and objectives of the Authority are met
  • SIPA is self-funded, meaning, no tax dollars or appropriated funds are used
  • SIPA is a government charged with assisting Colorado governments in putting more information and services online to engage with constituents 24/7
  • SIPA provides technology solutions and is a procurement vehicle for those technologies
  • SIPA negotiates private sector partnerships and price so governments don't have to

Mission

The Statewide Internet Portal Authority is to provide efficient and effective services for residents through the use of modern business practices and innovative technology solutions.
