About CORE

The State of Colorado's vision is to create a core financial system that:
  • integrates finance, budget, procurement and accounting;
  • empowers employee efficiency, enables program effectiveness and ensures elegant interactions with the State's customers and residents; and
  • supports Colorado's long-standing commitment to fiscal discipline, financial accountability, government transparency and cost-beneficial controls.
The mission of the project team is to rapidly modernize the State's core financial system:
  • by optimizing the purchased solution (CGI Advantage, branded CORE for the State of Colorado) around best business practices;
  • through broad employee engagement across all departments; and 
  • with a determined focus on essential activities. 

By integrating the State’s accounting, budget, and procurement functions, CORE enables seamless operations and reliability of data. Through its key functions, CORE ensures the state is able to meet its long-standing commitment to fiscal discipline, financial accountability, government transparency, and cost benefit controls. CORE’s key functions are to:

Track the State’s $29 billion in annual expenditure transactions,
Pay vendors, 
Record payroll,
Support the collection of about $9 billion in grant revenues, and,
Apply $8 billion of tax revenues – to name just a few of its key functions.
