Engineers, Architects, and Surveyors can easily email the contractors Digitally Signed and Sealed Drawings as PDFs. Digitally Signed and Sealed Plans must be uploaded in their original digital format. Scanned Digitally Sealed Plans will not be accepted as scanning removes the digital signature and seal.

Every engineered drawing uploaded for review to the City of Port Orange SmartGov Portal must have a Digital Seal and Signature combo. All design professionals will also need to have their identity authenticated by a third-party Certification Authority per State Statue 471.025 and Florida Administrative Code 61G15-23.003.
