**Summary:**We give a solution to the decomposition problem for completely positive maps by generalizing Choquetâ€™s theorem in the context of CP-convexity theory, i.e., if A is a separable C*-algebra and H is a separable Hilbert space, then every CP-state $\psi \in Q_H (A)$ can be represented by a CP-measure $\lambda_\psi$ supported by the CP-extreme elements D_h (A) of Q_H (A).
