"Interim Review" Process Name Change to "Single PDF"


May 12, 2020

 BDS "Interim Review" Process Name Change to "Single PDF"

Good afternoon,
The Bureau of Development Services will now refer to the applicant upload process as “Single PDF” instead of “Interim Review.”  
BDS pivoted quickly after the Mayor’s State of Emergency to start accepting more types of plans via ProjectDox. Currently, applicants can submit Process Managed Permits and projects via ProjectDox for limited plan review processing. This includes New Single Family Residences (NSFR) and demolition permits. For the first few months, we referred to this process as “Interim Review” or “ProjectDox Limited.” We initially thought the “Interim Review” process would be temporary, but we will not be limiting our intake ability as we move forward, only expanding our ability to take in more plans for review.
We are now using “Single PDF” review to refer to the applicant upload process. The terms “PDox Limited” and “Interim Review Process” are being retired.

Thank you for your cooperation and help in making this transition!
Please let us know if you have any questions.
