Tracker Introduction

Tracker has three main modules and a fee calculator: Projects Status, School Construction Inspectors and Materials Testing Laboratories. The Projects Status module includes information on construction projects that have been submitted to DSA for review. School Construction Inspectors keeps track of inspectors certified by the DSA School Construction Inspector Program. Materials Testing Laboratories provide information about labs that are currently certified by DSA. The Plan/Field review calculator allows user to calculate the fees for school and public building construction projects in DSA.

NOTE: Tracker only contains projects that were submitted to DSA on or after November 12, 1997. For information on projects submitted before November 12, 1997, please review Pre-Tracker projects above, or contact the DSA Regional Office where the project was submitted or contact DSA Headquarters.

Project Status Module

To obtain information from Tracker you need to know the DSA Regional Office where you turn in your project for review and your project application number. DSA has four regional offices (Oakland, Sacramento, Los Angeles and San Diego). The application is a six digit-number. After you provide a valid application number the application screen will be displayed. From this screen you can link to many other pages such as project fee, schedule, project status, addenda, change order, etc. If you do not know your project number, then you can search for projects by using the counties map. Select the county you want to search, the list of school districts in that county will be provided. Select a school district, a list of projects for that school district will be provided and you can select the project you want to review.
