Section 4: Sealing and Dating ScreensAnchor: #i1013332
There are three screens on DCIS regarding the sealing and dating of a project (CSJ) for letting.
The responsible engineer update screen (S1) must be completed by the responsible engineer in the district. After the PS&E is submitted by the district to the Austin office of DES or TRF, revisions to the plans will be coordinated with the responsible engineer. Mutually agreeable changes or modifications will be covered by the responsible engineer’s sealing.
New signing/sealing procedures are in place to allow for a Landscape Architect as well as an Engineer to release an electronic seal for Landscape Scenic Enhancement (LSE) projects.
The reviewing engineer update screen (S2) is available if a reviewing engineer needs to seal and date the project when changes to the plans cannot be agreed upon between the district and the responsible division (DES or TRF). By using the S2 screen, the reviewing engineer indicates his or her responsibility for any design relationship between the revised and original components of all other plan sheets.
The sealing and dating inquiry screen (S3) is available to all users since it is a view only screen.
Please contact Letting Management (DES (LM)) to remove an engineer’s seal.Anchor: #i1013368
