Prince William County’s Development Agencies needed to implement a new technology to replace the aging Tidemark system. The new system, EnerGov, is an enterprise application that is fully integrated with the GIS, is mobile enabled and helps streamline regulatory processes that govern licensing, permitting, land management and citizen response.
Yes, you will be asked to fill out a form with your company/contact information and submit it the first time you do business with PWC. The new system offers many improvements over the old Tidemark system and required us to change some of practices and procedures, such as the way we handle Global Contacts. Entering global contacts from the required form provides us an opportunity to revisit and validate information associated with all customers.
The ePortal System is a website that offers 24-hour access to the following services: Permits, Inspections, Plans, Requests, and Code Enforcement. It is replacing the outdated technology used for the homegrown applications: ePlanStatus, ePermits, eInspections, eInspectionSchedule, Land Plan Review Status . The system also gives customers and citizens the ability to view and track development plans that have been submitted into the County system. The data that is viewed through the ePortal comes directly out of the EnerGov system so that the most up-to-date comments and information is available to the viewer. Online Services provides citizens, contractors, developers, and agencies an opportunity to conduct business over the internet 24/7. ePortal significantly improves the development processes by integrating the following functions: permitting, inspections, business home improvement contractor licensing , citizen request, land use planning and project review.
The County has set up a Customer Call Center to assist with customer questions and basic technical support. You may contact the Customer Call Center (703-792-6875), Monday through Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm or email at DMS@pwcgov.org.
Global contact information in the new DMS is handled much differently than it was in the previous system. Because we will be creating contacts from scratch, this provides us an opportunity to revisit and validate information associated with all customers. The DMS system will require Prince William County staff to verify and validate all contact information entered into the system. This will ensure that the most accurate information is received and staff can provide the best customer service possible using a partnership approach.
