We are not affiliated in anyway with DSA, the "Department of the State Architect", or the State of California.




Use the scroll-down menus above or links at the left to access
resources and practical information for DSA inspectors.


     All of us in the DSA inspection field need access to good information when searching for contacts for work, resources, codes and standards, forms associations, inspection tools, or a place to speak with other inspectors. Look carefully, you'll find a wide range of information that might take you hours to find elsewhere.

     DSA Inspection Resource has been designed as a one-stop source for California school inspection information. The site was created by DSA inspectors with a history of promoting education through access to information.  Other than being DSA certified Class 1 inspectors, we are not affiliated in anyway with the Department of the State Architect (DSA) or the State of California.

       Inspection firms should consider the site as a contact source for DSA inspectors as well as an educational and reference resource. Inspection firms can utilize the Client's Bulletin Board and review posts on the Inspector's Bulletin Board when looking for inspectors. In addition to accessing information on when specific inspectors will be available, the Inspector's Bulletin Board offers clients and district representatives a way to access more in-depth and up-to-date information on DSA certified inspectors for future projects.

     Clients such as Districts, Community Colleges, or CM firms can use the site to connect with inspection firms and independent DSA inspectors providing DSA inspection services.  Clients seeking DSA inspectors can review the Inspectors Bulletin Board as well as post project and contact information on the Client's Bulletin Board or the new District RFP Bulletin Board.

     Individual Inspectors that will be available for work, either directly with school districts or through established inspection firms, can post their contact information on the Inspector's Bulletin Board.  The bulletin board also provides inspector's an opportunity to tell prospective clients about their work experience.

     DSA Inspectors are encouraged to use the Ask Inspector Bob page to ask questions or comment on DSA related subjects. Inspector Bob will do his best to provide you with an answer. You can use any name you choose and there is no sign-up or request for personal information.

     Whether you're an established inspector or you're wondering how to become an inspector, we'll do our best to provide you with good links and solid information. We appreciate your input and suggestions.
