State Classified position descriptions

PDQ’s are descriptions of individual positions within the State of Colorado Classified system. These documents:

  • Define individual job duties and responsibilities
  • Address the four factors used to classify positions (decision making, complexity, purpose of contact and line/staff authority)
  • Are used by supervisors to develop performance plans

Presentation by longtime HR employee
