May 01, 2012New process for submitting change orders to DSA - Use of new form DSA-168
A new process has been developed for reporting of final school construction project costs to DSA by the school or community college district. This is part of an effort to streamline field oversight and certification of school projects.
A new form, DSA-168, provides a new means of transmitting the information to DSA. This eliminates the need for DSA to track all change orders individually for the purpose of calculating fees.
This new reporting process took effect on May 1, 2012. Because of changes implemented in eTracker, all projects regardless of age are subject to this process and the use of the reporting form DSA-168.
These changes implement code changes in Title 24, Part 1, Section 4-339, that states in part “The final certification of compliance will not be issue until the owner has filed a notice of completion and has filed a statement of final actual project cost as identified in Section 4-322, and has paid all required fees to the Department of General Services.”
The new form is now available on the DSA web site, forms page at http://www.dgs.ca.gov/dsa/Forms.aspx.
