The Information Technology Advancement Project (ITAP) is a large and complex technology initiative sponsored by the Bureau of Development Services. ITAP will update the City's legacy permitting and case management software system and move our paper-based development review process to a more streamlined and efficient online digital system.
For the last several months, consultants from Coraggio Group have been assisting BDS with an organizational assessment focused on the bureau’s health, culture, and organizational structure.
BDS budget staff are already engaged in planning for development of the bureau’s Requested Budget for fiscal year (FY) 2016-17 (July 2016 – June 2017).
The DRAC is the City’s primary advisory body regarding development review. The DRAC’s members represent groups with interests in the outcome of policies, budgets, regulations, and procedures that affect development review processes.
