The Transition Team is comprised of twelve members (listed below), six from the Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation and six from the Division of Wildlife. The Team is charged with development of a comprehensive plan to merge the two agencies to create the new Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The plan must identify ways to accomplish three primary objectives: 1) eliminating unnecessary duplication, 2) identifying the means to achieve the greatest possible efficiencies in the delivery of products and services, and 3) identifying strategies to enhance the effectiveness of our programs and operations while fulfilling the new joint mission.
Over the past several months, The Transition Team assisted employee work groups by managing the process, providing resources where needed, and challenging work group members to be comprehensive, forward-thinking and creative in their work. The Transition Team also solicited review and feedback from employees, senior managers, stakeholders and the public. This ongoing dialogue is critical to the success of the transition process and the merger.
