Project Requirements: Project Sign-Off and Completion
Once the project is completed, the owner or the owner’s authorized representative must ensure the following items/tasks are completed/submitted prior to project sign-off: completed reports for all the required Special Inspections submitted by SIA’s; all required Department inspections are performed; self-certification of results performed by contractors of record are submitted; and the Department Final Inspection is performed.
Submission of Special Inspections can be done online by Special Inspection Agency.
Request for Department inspections required during various project stages online, and resolve any objections, if any.
If the Contractor elects to self-certify the required DOB inspections, make sure to submit an online notice of intent to self-certify, which may be audited, followed by inspection results.
Complete the final sign-off inspection to close the project.
Substantive changes require a PAA. If the completed project has changes that are not substantive, As-built drawings are required. The Applicant-of-Record must submit revised as-built drawing(s) prior to project sign-off.
Required Department inspections must be scheduled through DOB NOW: Inspections. The online portal provides the user with the ability to request and cancel appointments online, as well as view inspection results and documentation.
