Please be sure your email address is correct, as all notifications will be emailed through IDT.

Submitting through IDT

Log in and select options from the drop down box. 

Required fields are bold. If you are unsure of what to enter into a field and an entry is required, enter N/A or 0. Upload required documents such as site plans, a Worker’s Compensation Affidavit and Lien Agents at the upload screen. These documents are required to be in the PDF format.

Additional Information

BuildIT and IDT are not the same program. Having a BuildIT account is not the same as having an IDT account. These are two different accounts and require two different log ins. BuildIT is for viewing the permit, viewing inspection comments, scheduling inspections (for contractors only), and reviewing inspection comments. IDT is strictly for plan submittal and plan review. You are able to access review comments made by the reviewers and you are able to view the status of your submittal in IDT.  If revisions are necessary, revisions will need to be submitted through IDT.
