Alternative Plan Review & Inspection
This program allows the "Fee Owner" the option of using a private provider to conduct plan review and inspection duties in lieu of the municipal building department personnel.
Miami-Dade County must register all architects, engineers and individuals certified under Chapter 471, Chapter 481, and part XII of Chapter 468 of the Florida Statutes who apply to participate in the Alternative Plan Review and Inspection Program for Unincorporated Miami-Dade County. The online automated information system, labeled Private Provider and Duly Authorized Representatives, are available to provide building departments with instant notification regarding the status of any registered person to facilitate issuance of permits under the Alternative Plan Review and Inspection process.
The Florida Building Commission has established forms to be used when participating in the Alternative Plan Review and Inspection Program (Section 553.791, Florida Statutes):

- The Private Provider Plan Compliance Affidavit form is used by the private provider to attest to the Building Official that the plans submitted by the private provider were reviewed for and follow the Florida Building Code and all local amendments to the Florida Building Code.
