Permit Fee

In an effort to reduce the cost of projects across the entire building program, while ensuring compliance with quality, safety and contractual compliance, DCM has developed a varied recharge model. Several groups within DCM will maintain their hourly accounting for their efforts, but their time will be billed based upon a percentage of the overall construction cost of the project, instead of by the hour. The FY20 Permit Fee percentage is 2.58%.
