Project Dox

ProjectDox is a tool for plan submission, review, approval, and tracking using a paperless online system that allows parallel collaboration between agencies to review and markup plans, share comments and more easily identify potential conflicts and issues. ProjectDox offers automatic task notification and plan routing between the applicant and all review departments. It also incorporates tools to increase the effectiveness of the review process and reduce review cycle time. The use of ProjectDox is intended to result in a better product with less effort and time. 

All plan submissions, excluding pre-submission community meetings, require an owner's authorization and a professional review statement
