When can I apply through ePermits instead of Momentum? What is the difference between the Momentum and ePermits Fire Protection Systems Permit (FIR) cases?
DPIE has a new permitting system called Momentum and is transitioning from ePermits, the previous permitting system. If the related building (construction/use) permit was processed in ePermits, applicants have the option to apply for the FIR case through ePermits instead of Momentum. The ePermits process is different, and the case is not automatically directed to a third-party plan reviewer; therefore, the applicant must upload the third-party approved plans and documents. If the permit was applied for through Momentum, the third-party plan reviewers will review the case online, so there is no need to have the plans and documents approved ahead of time by the third-party reviewer and separately uploaded by the applicant.
