This project will advance the development of so-called e-permitting, a regionally supported, online system for Cape Cod municipalities and Nantucket to issue and monitor permits, licenses, and inspections, with a user-friendly web-based portal for citizens and contractors. The automated system, once developed, will implement a common technology infrastructure and software system to be adopted regionally but tailored to each town to eliminate redundant individual purchases and save public municipal funds.
The Cape Cod Commission is serving as fiscal agent for the project. DLTA funds will cover project management expenses, including establishment of a SharePoint site to maximize participation from local officials. An RFP was issued and a bidders conference held in May.
The project is also supported by a $500,000 "Community Innovation Challenge" grant from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Administration and Finance for software and customization for pilot towns.
