Facilities Planning and Safety Workload Updates
Facilities Planning and
Safety is posting weekly workload updates to increase program transparency and
improve performance. Stakeholder
feedback has been positive and we look forward to further improvements.
Projects listed on
updates are selected according to submission date and the skill sets of current
contractors and temporary plans review staff. Our normal practice is, and
continues to be, to review projects in the order in which they are received.
