E-FILING becomes a reality in 2018
Electronic filings have been discussed for the past five years, and some thought it might never happen. Alas, it is happening, in 2018. Our firm will be participating in beta testing of pink report application filings in July of 2018. Based on the success rate of the beta filings, it is possible that full electronic filings will be available as early as the first quarter of 2019 – not that far away.
DRE response times are not expected to improve greatly due to the E-filings, since review periods are mandated by law. However, with the advance of electronic submittal filings, each submittal should shave off a day or two, gaining as much as two weeks during the life of any DRE filing as a minimum.
If you would like your project to be a part of the beta testing filing group, just call our office and we will be happy to add your project to the electronic filing inventory.
