CDHS Performance Plan

CDHS prepares an annual performance plan to outline the goals and activities to be undertaken in the coming state fiscal year. Its contents are a reflection of the vision of the department and the synthesis of the input received from staff, stakeholders and community partners, collected through a series of town hall and staff meetings, webinars and online surveys conducted throughout the summer. 

The State Measurement for Accountable, Responsive, and Transparent (SMART) Government Act (Colorado House Bill 10-1119) established a performance-based budgeting system for Colorado. Section 2-7-201, et seq., C.R.S., requires departments to create performance plans outlining their goals, and describe how those goals will be evaluated through performance measures. Performance plans are to be readily available to legislators and the public. The department’s Fiscal Year 2020-21 Performance Plan describes its mission, vision and goals, and provides annual performance measures and strategies for achieving its goals.
