Stakeholders

The Colorado OPG welcomes you to become a collaborative partner to assist the OPG in fulfilling its Mission.

Objectives of the Stakeholder Advisory Panel (SAP)

The purpose of the Stakeholder Advisory Panel (SAP) is to establish a forum for communication, information gathering, feedback and collaboration between the OPG, its clients and its community stakeholders.  The purpose is accomplished by creating an environment in which clients and stakeholders are able to share their experience or expertise in a timely manner to voice opinions, support, concerns and suggestions regarding the OPG and its operations.  In addition, the SAP provides a resource from which the OPG can solicit feedback and recommendations.  While the panel is strictly advisory in nature, its work has the potential to influence and shape the OPG while promoting collaboration, accountability and transparency.  For this reason, the selection process will be attentive to attracting volunteers that represent a diverse and as broadly representative as reasonably possible selection of members.

The current term is through the end of the Pilot Project and may be renewed if/when the Program is continued or expanded.
