CHANGES TO THE CONSTRUCTION OVERSIGHT PROCESS
The DSA is implementing significant changes to the Construction Oversight Process. These changes are designed to streamline the DSA construction phase process and to ensure that projects are certified at the completion of construction. Effective June 1, 2013, the DSA will utilize an Inspection Card Process similar to that used by virtually every building department throughout the State. Construction Oversight Process Changes: Courtesy Preview of Documents related to these changes is now available on line.
