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.
