The Division of the State Architect (DSA) anticipates the regulations will take effect on October 1, 2015. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;The changes to the 2013 California Green Building Standards (CALGreen) Code apply to all new construction, and building additions of more than 1,000 square feet. For projects on an existing campus, the area of landscape rehabilitation must equal 75 percent of the new building&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s footprint. If all landscape areas on a construction campus already comply with the irrigation requirements, the school district is not obligated to bring other district landscape areas into compliance. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;Under the new regulations, school districts will achieve cost savings over time by reducing the amount of water used for irrigation. In addition, the regulations will help school districts meet requirements of their local water districts and Governor Brown&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s Executive Order B-29-15. The changes also provide an opportunity for school districts to set the example for water conservation among their students and communities. But most importantly, making these changes conserves a valuable resource in our state&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s time of need. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;DSA is committed to developing a clear, streamlined process to assist schools and community colleges to comply with the new requirements. DSA will publish information and resources to provide technical assistance for school districts. School districts are encouraged to contact their local water districts for information on potential funding programs to assist in water conservation efforts. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;Read more about the new regulations in our &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/pubs/WaterRegsFactSheet.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;fact sheet (PDF - 223 KB)&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;7/31/2015 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;1304&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;7x7x7: Case Studies in School Energy and Water Reduction&lt;/Title&gt;&lt;Url /&gt;&lt;ViewOrder&gt;-1&lt;/ViewOrder&gt;&lt;Description&gt;&amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;The Division of the State Architect (DSA) seeks seven qualified architectural firms to provide training services for a new initiative (7x7x7: Case Studies in School Energy and Water Reduction) to assist school districts in increasing the energy and water efficiency of California&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s more than 10,000 existing K-12 public school campuses and 112 community college facilities.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;For more information, visit DSA&#39;s &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/Programs/progSustainability.aspx&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;Sustainability&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; Web page. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;7/27/2015 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;1303&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;Project Submittal Guideline for CALGreen Code Revised&lt;/Title&gt;&lt;Url /&gt;&lt;ViewOrder&gt;-1&lt;/ViewOrder&gt;&lt;Description&gt;&amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;The 2013 Intervening Code measures for the CALGreen Code became effective July 1, 2015.

DSA currently scans approved documents and provides them at no expense to the client. Unfortunately, DSA can no longer assume these expenses. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;The option of DSA continuing to perform scanning services and charging applicants for the DSA staff expenses was considered. However, DSA determined that actual DSA staff costs would exceed the average cost of having an outside printing firm scan documents, and that outside printing firms could provide document scanning more expeditiously than DSA. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;6/30/2015 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;1289&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;New Fees for DSA Laboratory Evaluation and Acceptance Program&lt;/Title&gt;&lt;Url /&gt;&lt;ViewOrder&gt;-1&lt;/ViewOrder&gt;&lt;Description&gt;&amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;The Division of the State Architect&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s (DSA) Laboratory Evaluation and Acceptance Program ensures that material testing and special inspections are performed in compliance with industry-established standards for California&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s public school, community college and state-owned or state-leased essential services building construction projects.

This change in DSA&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s scanning procedure is part of a larger effort to move toward electronic-only storage of project plans.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;Clients will need to prearrange services with an outside printing firm to scan the approved documents at the applicant&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s expense, and only the outside printing firm will be allowed to remove the approved documents from the DSA office. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;Related to this change, updated versions of DSA Policy &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/pubs/PL_06-01.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;PL 06-01: Record Sets of DSA Approved Plans and Specs (PDF - 32 KB)&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; and form &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/forms/DSA_145.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;DSA 145: Record Set Handling (PDF 74 KB)&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; are now available on DSA&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s Internet site.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;State law, Education Code Section 17304, requires DSA to prepare a set of printed documents after plan approval, and any costs incurred are to be paid by the applicant. DSA currently scans approved documents and provides them at no expense to the client. Unfortunately, DSA can no longer assume these expenses. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;The option of DSA continuing to perform scanning services and charging applicants for the DSA staff expenses was considered. However, DSA determined that actual DSA staff costs would exceed the average cost of having an outside printing firm scan documents, and that outside printing firms could provide document scanning more expeditiously than DSA. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;6/23/2015 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;1272&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;IR A-22: Construction Projects and Items Exempt From DSA Review Revised&lt;/Title&gt;&lt;Url /&gt;&lt;ViewOrder&gt;-1&lt;/ViewOrder&gt;&lt;Description&gt;&amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/pubs/IR_A-22_rev06-16-15.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;IR A-22: Construction Projects and Items Exempt From DSA Review (PDF - 281 KB)&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; has been modified to provide clarification to construction projects that are exempt from Fire and Life Safety review.

This change in DSA&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s scanning procedure is part of a larger effort to move toward electronic-only storage of project plans. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;Clients will need to prearrange services with an outside printing firm to scan the approved documents at the applicant&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s expense. We suggest that applicants prepare by selecting a printing firm and arranging for scanning services. Form &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/forms/DSA_145.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;DSA-145: Record Set Handling (PDF 660 KB)&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; will be revised prior to July 1, 2015. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;State law, Education Code Section 17304, requires DSA to prepare a set of printed documents after plan approval, and any costs incurred are to be paid by the applicant. DSA currently scans approved documents and provides them at no expense to the client. Unfortunately, DSA can no longer assume these expenses. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;The option of DSA continuing to perform scanning services and charging applicants for the DSA staff expenses was considered. However, DSA determined that actual DSA staff costs would exceed the average cost of having an outside printing firm scan documents, and that outside printing firms could provide document scanning more expeditiously than DSA. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;Outside printing firms providing scanning services is not only more cost beneficial to applicants, but also allows clients to proceed more quickly to construction since scanned documents will be more readily available. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;5/21/2015 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;1226&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;Seismic Mitigation Program Fee Adjustments &lt;/Title&gt;&lt;Url /&gt;&lt;ViewOrder&gt;-1&lt;/ViewOrder&gt;&lt;Description&gt;&amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt; In order to adequately cover the Division of the State Architect&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s costs to administer the Seismic Mitigation Program, fees related to Phase 1: Verification of Eligibility and Phase 2: Replacement Option Analysis were adjusted. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;For detailed information on the program and related fees, please refer to &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/pubs/PR_08-03.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;Procedure 08-03 (PDF - 313 KB)&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;.

This new tool allows school districts, stakeholders, and the public to access objective information on DSA-certified project inspector performance, demonstrating the competency of inspectors. DSA collects information on project inspector performance through the use of form &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/forms/DSA_119-SAMPLE.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;DSA 119: Project Inspector Performance Review&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; and form &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/forms/DSA_180-SAMPLE.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;DSA 180: Project Inspector Performance Record&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;. All DSA 119 and DSA 180 forms completed on or after March 1, 2015 are now available in the Project Inspector Performance Review Box. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;DSA field engineers complete the DSA 119 form after site visits to evaluate the performance of project inspectors. This form captures objective information, including whether: &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;ul&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;li&amp;amp;gt;The project inspector was present during the site visit. &amp;amp;lt;/li&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;li&amp;amp;gt;The project inspector&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s job file was complete. &amp;amp;lt;/li&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;li&amp;amp;gt;The project inspector reported any deviations from DSA-approved construction documents. &amp;amp;lt;/li&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;li&amp;amp;gt;The project inspector submitted a verified report. &amp;amp;lt;/li&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;/ul&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;Following project completion, DSA staff complete a DSA 180 form, a document that compiles the information from all of the project&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s DSA 119 forms for a single project inspector. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;Interested parties can look up an inspector by name and review all Project Inspector Performance Reviews (DSA 119) and Project Inspector Performance Records (DSA 180) completed for that inspector. The Project Inspector Performance Review Box provides all DSA-certified project inspectors a resource to demonstrate their competency, allowing future clients to better determine whether a particular inspector is right for their district&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s project. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;The Project Inspector Performance Review Box can be accessed at &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;https://dsabox.box.com/s/15cfhaa7norg9cxybdhwuybavtbq4wfs&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;dsabox.box.com/s/15cfhaa7norg9cxybdhwuybavtbq4wfs&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;. Please note that since evaluation forms completed prior to March 1, 2015 are not published, the Project Inspector Performance Review Box is a resource that will become more useful over time. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;3/16/2015 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;1103&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;New Bulletin BU 15-01 Issued&lt;/Title&gt;&lt;Url /&gt;&lt;ViewOrder&gt;-1&lt;/ViewOrder&gt;&lt;Description&gt;&amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt; The Division of the State Architect (DSA) has issued Bulletin &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/bulletins/BU_15-01.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;BU 15-01: Requirements for Use of ASC Steel Deck 3WH and 3WHF Metal Deck With Concrete Fill (PDF - 138 KB)&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; to clarify the requirements for using ASC Steel Deck 3WH &amp;amp;amp;amp; 3WHF metal deck with concrete fill.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;3/5/2015 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;1102&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;2015 DSA Coalition for Adequate School Housing (C.A.S.H.)

However, several structures did experience limited nonstructural damage to architectural, mechanical and electrical features including suspended ceilings, light fixtures, and cabinets and shelves. This earthquake serves as a reminder of the potential safety hazards that can occur from nonstructural features improperly attached to the structure. DSA advises school districts to take the opportunity to review the &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/pubs/SB1122.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;Guide and Checklist for Nonstructural Earthquake Hazards in California Schools (PDF - 454 KB)&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; and assess school buildings to reduce potential safety hazards from nonstructural elements. This document was jointly produced by the Governor&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s Office of Emergency Services, the Department of General Services &amp;amp;amp;ndash; Division of the State Architect, the Seismic Safety Commission, and the Department of Education. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;9/25/2014 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;1042&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;Green California Schools Summit 2014&lt;/Title&gt;&lt;Url /&gt;&lt;ViewOrder&gt;-1&lt;/ViewOrder&gt;&lt;Description&gt;&amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;The 2014 Green California Schools Summit and Community Colleges Summit will take place at the Pasadena Convention Center on November 5-6.

DSA Certification Box allows everyone to view uncertified project files, sorted by district, campus, and project.

DSA is shifting resources to accommodate the high volume of submittals to limit potential delays, and remains committed to most the expeditious processes possible. As always, we look forward to working with you on your project delivery efforts. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;1/10/2014 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;934&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;DSA Rescinds Bulletin (BU) 13-01 with Revised BU 13-05&lt;/Title&gt;&lt;Url /&gt;&lt;ViewOrder&gt;-1&lt;/ViewOrder&gt;&lt;Description&gt;&amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;The formula used for Access Compliance filing fees on projects over $2 million has been revised (&amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/bulletins/BU_13-05.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;DSA Bulletin 13-05 (PDF - 78 KB)&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt;). Based on an evaluation of incoming projects and feedback received from clients, DSA determined that the previous access compliance filing fee formula resulted in significant and inequitable increases for larger scale projects. DSA amended the review fee formula to a five-step process based on project cost. The effective date of the adjusted filing fee is retroactive to June 1, 2013. Clients who had larger projects and paid fees based on the previous formula will receive a refund from DSA. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;For example, under the previous formula, DSA access compliance review fees for a school project with a cost of $200 million were $204,250. Under the revised formula, those fees are now $119,250, a decrease of $85,000 or 42 percent. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;12/27/2013 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;931&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;New IR on Access Requirements for Solar Photovoltaic Systems&lt;/Title&gt;&lt;Url /&gt;&lt;ViewOrder&gt;-1&lt;/ViewOrder&gt;&lt;Description&gt;&amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;DSA has issued &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/pubs/IR_11B-9_12-12-13.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;IR 11B-9 (PDF - 132 KB)&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; on DSA&amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s position regarding the installation of solar photovoltaic electric (PV) systems on school sites and the accessibility provisions applicable to those projects. &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;12/16/2013 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;930&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;Request for Qualifications for Structural Plan Review Services - DSA.RFQ.13.01&lt;/Title&gt;&lt;Url /&gt;&lt;ViewOrder&gt;-1&lt;/ViewOrder&gt;&lt;Description&gt;&amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;The Division of the State Architect is soliciting for a Statement of Qualifications from qualified structural engineering firms interested in providing structural plan review services for the DSA Regional Offices.&amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;Deadline to submit Statement of Qualifications: &amp;amp;lt;strong&amp;amp;gt;January 22, 2014 by 2:00 pm&amp;amp;lt;/strong&amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;For additional information please contact:&amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt; Rosa Martinez, Contract Analyst 916-375-5963, &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;mailto:rosa.martinez@dgs.ca.gov&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;rosa.martinez@dgs.ca.gov&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt; Handa Gugel, Contract Analyst 916-375-4568, &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;mailto:handa.gugel@dgs.ca.gov&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;handa.gugel@dgs.ca.gov&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;To download the RFQ and SOW, please click the link below: &amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;https://www.bidsync.com/DPX/ca/cdgs?ac=view&amp;amp;amp;amp;auc=1951934&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;https://www.bidsync.com/DPX/ca/cdgs?ac=view&amp;amp;amp;amp;auc=1951934&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;gt;&lt;/Description&gt;&lt;ImageSource /&gt;&lt;TrackClicks&gt;False&lt;/TrackClicks&gt;&lt;NewWindow&gt;False&lt;/NewWindow&gt;&lt;PublishDate&gt;12/12/2013 12:00:00 AM&lt;/PublishDate&gt;&lt;ExpireDate&gt;1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM&lt;/ExpireDate&gt;&lt;/Announcement&gt;&lt;Announcement&gt;&lt;ItemId&gt;927&lt;/ItemId&gt;&lt;ModuleId&gt;593&lt;/ModuleId&gt;&lt;Title&gt;New Bulletin on Access Compliance Fee Changes&lt;/Title&gt;&lt;Url /&gt;&lt;ViewOrder&gt;-1&lt;/ViewOrder&gt;&lt;Description&gt;&amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;gt;DSA has issued Bulletin &amp;amp;lt;a href=&amp;amp;quot;http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/bulletins/BU_13-05.pdf&amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;gt;BU 13-05 (PDF - 64 KB)&amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;gt; to notify interested parties about changes to DSA Access Compliance fees effective November 1, 2013.
