Permit Applications

The following outlines the permitting process and the steps for permit approval. You will receive email notification every time your permit application status changes.

If your local jurisdiction has requested that DFPC perform the plan review and/or inspections for your project, you will need an Advanced Technical Services Agreement.

Email contact:

1 - Create an account in RMS

This account will allow you to see all your permits and invoices in one place.

2 - Create a new permit application

Once you have successfully submitted your permit application please follow the landing page instructions on uploading documents.

3 - Upload your documents and pay 50% of the estimated permit fees. Until this has been done, your permit status is Submission Incomplete

We ask only 50% of the fees are paid in case there are adjustments during the review process so you do not end up overpaying. Once this step is done you will get an email stating Submission Complete.

4 - Submission Complete

Your application is completed and will now be placed in the Plan Review queue.

5 - In Plan Review

Your application has been assigned to a plan reviewer. You will be contacted by your Plan Reviewer.

6 - Permit Issued

Your permit has been approved, payment has been made in full, approved drawings were shared in Box with the permit owner and the permit card will be mailed. If you need to designate where the permit card will be mailed, please use our webform.

7 - Permit Card Issuance

Due to a recent procedure change, permit pickup is no longer available.

For Health, Fire, or Life Safety permits you can request the permit be shipped to you. All school construction permits are emailed directly to the permit owner for printing.

8 - Inspections

Permit card and approved documents must be on site prior to any inspection taking place. Once all are on site you may request inspections here.
