About CDOT

Federal Government Liaison

Federal Government Building

The federal government liaison provides support to internal and external stakeholders, and is responsible for outreach efforts with Colorado’s cngressional 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 Transportation Commission on the federal processes.
