Welcome to ePlans

The Department of Permitting Services continues to expand and update our eServices including ePermits and ePlans.  ePlans has recently updated the system requirements guide for using ProjectDox software.  

ePlans is our web-based applicaton for electronic plan submission and review using ProjectDox software.  Using ePlans gives DPS customers and staff from mutiple departments and agencies access to plans, documents and stored data in a way that shares information for a more efficient plan review cycle.  ePlans allows all red-lines, markups and annotations appled to the plan to occur on virtual layers.  ePlans saves customers time and money through the convenience of online submission. ePlans along with ePermits are helping Permitting Services carbon footprint by eliminating the vast volumes of paper and reducing vehicle emissions, gas consumptions by minimizing or eliminating trips to the DPS office.

Training is required to use ePlans.  Customers who want to participate in ePlans will need to attend a DPS training session to access ProjectDox.  ePlans training is now available online.  DPS provides eServices training including ePermits and ePlans every Monday at 9 am in the Training Room at DPS Offices located at 255 Rockville Pike.  Please call 311 or 240-777-0311 with any requests.

TIPS for Using eServices  

Tip #1: Upload your plans with the application.  If plans are not uploaded within in 5 days the application may be voided.  The filing fee is nonrefundable. 

Online Training for ePlans has arrived!   With this latest enhancement, Permitting Services is open via the internet to transact routine business 24/7.  DPS’ goal is to make ePermits and ePlans a mandatory, seamless process in the future. As of June 30, 2014, applicants submitted 44% of applications for new home building permits using ePlans.
