Frequently Asked Questions

The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) is one of the principal executive departments established by Colorado law. It encompasses nine different divisions plus several offices. The purpose of the DORA agencies is to regulate businesses and individuals where the state legislature has deemed such regulation to be necessary and in the public interest.

The various agencies of DORA were established by the legislature and are governed by specific statutes. The agencies, usually through boards or commissions, enact rules to implement their statutes. The process for enacting these rules is open to input from the public. Questions and complaints concerning any of the individuals or businesses regulated by DORA agencies can be addressed either to the Executive Director or directly to the agency.
