Required Items

Required Items indicate what requirements apply to a specific job, and when they must be satisfied. Every job filing is unique. Scope of work, location, and other variables determine which requirements apply.

Required Items Reference Guide

The Required Items Reference Guide is an online reference that establishes a clear, common standard for when requirements apply to a particular job filing and how to satisfy each required item.

Exclusions: The current version of the Guide does not reference to Controlled Inspection Required Items and most Builder's Pavement Plan (BPP) Required Items.

Note: The Guide may not be a complete list of every item required for a job.
