“PASS is a collaborative process that increases permitting efficiency, doesn’t changeany existing roles or processes, will not increase risk or liability, and will save owners, contractors,developers, and jurisdictions time and money.”  Randy Goodwin, Building Official, City of West Sacramento  

The PASS program has been designed to streamline permitting throughout a region. It is based on increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of plan review by implementing a clear and concise set of standards for document content and organization. Other benefits to the program include improvements in constructability, progress inspections, project closeout, and even future evolution of a building.  Participation in PASS is voluntary, and requires a training class and passing a test. There are currently two levels of the PASS Program.  PASS TI covers Tenant Improvements and Small Commercial Projects; PASS NC covers any size New Commercial or Multifamily Project

Jurisdictions currently using PASS include: City Jurisdictions of Sacramento, Roseville, Rocklin, Elk Grove, Galt, Lincoln, Folsom, Rancho Cordova, West Sacramento, Citrus Heights, Woodland, Davis, Modesto, and Oakdale; and County Jurisdictions of Sacramento, Stanislaus, El Dorado and Placer. Additional jurisdictions are expected to adopt. In addition a number of Plan Review consultancy firms use PASS, including Bureau Veritas, Interwest, Shums Coda, and Four Leaf.  Over 100 professionals are currently listed on the PASS registries.
