Based on a 2006 survey, federal employment in Fort Collins topped 1,663 people. Offices such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), U.S. Geological Survey, Dept. of Interiors Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, and Dept. of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control call Fort Collins home.
These offices have a long history in Fort Collins and provide many jobs, including scientist and support staff levels.
Doing business in Fort Collins makes sense for these federal offices due to the extensive research and collaborations available with Colorado State University. CSUs research in the fields of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Wildlife complements and leverages the ongoing, innovative work at the Federal level.
