Statewide Competency Model Initiative

CPTP is undertaking a statewide initiative to create a statewide competency model. This data-driven model will identify the top competencies needed by all state employees. Additionally, the creation of the statewide model also creates a starting point for CPTP to assist agencies and departments to create specific agency or even job models. We expect the project to be complete by the end of the fiscal year. Click on the documents below to read more about this project.
