Sumana (Suma) Nallapati is committed to positioning the Governor’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) as a leader in IT innovation for state government.

As Secretary of Technology and CIO for Colorado, Nallapati is responsible for a team of more than 900 people who deliver IT services to the executive branch agencies. Her leadership has brought about changes in the way the public can interact with government.

She impacts state agencies and residents’ lives daily through multi-million-dollar IT projects meant to improve public services.
