The MSI-BUILDING PERMITS SYSTEM developed by Municipal Software, Inc. was designed to assist local building departments in collecting permit fees and scheduling periodic inspections of projects in progress. This system will indicate when contractor insurance policies and bond policies have expired, by flashing the expiration date when assigning such contractor to perform work on a permit. The scheduling of inspections is made easy with the printing of work tickets for upcoming inspections. Entering inspection completion dates allows for progress reports on all “open” permits issued.

Features of the MSI-Building Permits System include

  • Pro-forma contractor group codes, fee codes, and inspection codes
  • Default of next available alphanumeric permit number and contractor number
  • Tracking of permits by improvement code
  • Automatic notification of expired contractor’s insurance and bond certificates
  • User maintainable permit fee tables, permit type codes, contractor tables, and inspection codes
  • Inspection scheduling by inspection date and time and inspector
  • Contractor entry available during permit entry
  • Permits linked to a parcel file of city addresses
  • Printing of contractor’s license and building permit
  • Full permit and inspections inquiry and reporting
  • Contractor maintenance with user defined category codes
  • Cash receipts entry with distribution to MSI-General Ledger
  • Interface availability with MSI-Cash Register
  • Up to 30 contractors and 30 fee codes per permit
  • History limited only to available disk space
