IAS Assessment

The IAS used thirteen accreditation categories to assess the city’s building departments. These included basic jurisdictional information, department staff, permitting, budget, construction codes, plan reviews, professional credentials/licenses, inspections, certificate of occupancies, on-site evaluations, annual reports, reevaluation, and complaints/appeals.

Throughout the accreditation process, IAS evaluators rigorously assess critical elements of the building department, such as customer service, code interpretation and enforcement, and fiscal strength.
