Permitting and Right Of Way System

Problem Statement:  

State and local governments spend over $200 billion on highways, roads, and other construction projects each year.  Agency transportation departments have antiquated systems that manage the process of permitting these constructions, assessing environmental impacts, tracking permits, and right of way.  

Our Solution:

Scope IT’s Permitting and Right Of Way System (ROWS) is an online solution utilized by Government transportation agencies to track construction projects, and manage their environmental permits. This solution will allow agencies to assess the environmental effects of proposed construction projects prior to permitting as required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). There are nine (9) major program areas, with several subsets, that utilize multiple dates and status designations to document the daily coordination with federal and state regulatory agencies. Each major program area has a staff user reviewing, entering status update, and coordinating the permitting of project for that area. Government transportation agency must receive clearance or approval from the regulatory agencies before proceeding with the purchase of right of way with federal funds. Once all tasks are complete, and NEPA requirements are met, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will concur with the project’s environmental classification and right of way acquisition can begin.
