Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement

On July 1, 2013, Prince George’s County officially opens its newest department, the Department of Permitting, Inspections & Enforcement (DPIE). This 280-person agency combines under one roof the staff and functions that support the authorization and regulation of building, site, road, and utility permits and building licenses which drive the local economy and ensure the health and safety of County residents, businesses and visitors.
DPIE is offering customers online tools to increase the speed, accuracy and convenience of the building permitting process. Customers can now complete the building permit application via the web. Once the application is completed online, the customer’s information is entered directly into the County’s permitting system without the need for a staff member to retype the information. In addition, customers can upload building plans for review via our eplan online application. This eliminates the need for customers to bring paper plans to our offices for many types of permits.
DPIE used organizational transformation, process streamlining, technology enhancement, space reconfiguration, and performance measurement and reporting to create a national model for administering the economic development functions of permitting, plan review, construction inspection, code enforcement and business licensing. Driving the vision for DPIE is the recognition that the County has significantly underperformed these functions for many years.
