DSA does not grant or renew California architect licenses. For information on California architect licensure requirements, contact the California Architects Board at cab@dca.ca.gov or (916) 574-7220.

DSA is comprised of a headquarters office in Sacramento and four regional offices located in Sacramento, San Diego, Los Angeles and Oakland. Our four regional offices carry out project plan review, construction oversight, and project close-out activities. The Headquarters office develops and oversees DSA programs, policies and procedures, and performs general administrative functions.

Counties served by each DSA Regional Office are shown in the map below:
