About CDOT

Federal Government Liaison

White House

The Federal Government Liaison provides support to both internal and external stakeholders and is responsible for outreach efforts with Colorado’s Congressional Delegation and their staff as well as representatives of federal government agencies on behalf of CDOT.   Because federal transportation authorization bills delineate how state Departments’ of Transportation must allocate their share of federal transportation funds, the Federal Liaison works with CDOT’s partners in Congress to ensure Colorado’s transportation programs are considered in the optimum light and advises the Executive Director, Executive Management Team and the Transportation Commission on the federal processes.

For specific questions, please contact Ron Papsdorf, Federal Liaison at (303) 757-9105 .
