The tool is the result of a 24 July 2012 executive order from Pennsylvania Governor, Tom Corbett, creating a Permit Decision Guarantee which established guaranteed timeframes in which DEP will make a decision on 278 types of permits and authorizations, provided the application is complete and technically adequate in the first submission. To date, DEP staff members are meeting these timeframes 96 percent of the time.
DEP will release subsequent reviews of the permitting policies in each of the next two quarters. The agency has also posted a schedule of Permit Decision Guarantee Webinars on its Web site.
