Under the bill, a state public body conducting a search for a chief
executive officer of an agency, authority, institution, or other entity is
required to name one or more candidates as finalists and to make the
finalist or finalists public prior to making an offer of employment. The
application materials of an applicant for any employment position,
including an applicant for an executive position who is not a finalist, are

not subject to public inspection under the Colorado Open Records Act.
The bill repeals a provision requiring that, if 3 or fewer candidates for an
executive position meet the minimum requirements for the position, all
of those candidates must be treated as finalists and their application
materials are public records.
