Getting to know DPS eServices


To enhance customer service for permit and license applicants, DPS has an extensive online application and permit information database.  Site users have fast access to permit processes now accessible through ePermits and ePlans.  Customers can perform a data search to obtain history and status of permits, request information, file a complaint and monitor complaint status, schedule or cancel inspections, apply for permits and submit plans all through eServices!

    Bringing you award winning service…that’s green!

ACH PAYMENTS NOW AVAILABLE FOR ALL ePERMITS!

Our award winning online services for ePermits and ePlans are rapidly expanding.  ePermits allow customers to submit an application, pay fees and receive a permit online.  These functions will vary with each permit type. 

ePlans is the most recent addition to DPS’ online services.  ePlans gives site users the ability to submit documents to DPS, track the review status and make changes.  DPS staff will review the plans, make comments, ask for additional information and approve the plans electronically.  Currently, customers are required to attend a training session prior to creating an ePlans account.  Training dates can be found at the ePlans link.

Today, both ePermits and ePlans are voluntary.  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.

Stay tuned, as more features are developed.  With this latest enhancement, Permitting Services is open via the internet to transact routine business 24/7.
