Program Description:  The ESI Peer Review Program in the Fairfax County consists of a Minimum Submission Review (MSR). This program provides a plan quality control review to save the time of the regulatory reviewers and speed the process of the plan approval.   The Minimum Submission Review involves peer review performed by the ESI Peer Review Team (ESIPRT) which consists of rotating private industry/governmental peer review engineers and ESI Staff Engineer. The ESIPRT is committed to review the plan within 48 hours from the receipt of the plan by ESI.  The peer review is done according to the appropriate established current checklist as listed in the following lines.  The Peer Review Team makes a final determination whether the result of the plan reviewed is acceptableacceptable with inserts, or non-acceptable according to the checklist and/or response letter prepared by the submitting engineers.  If the plan review result is unacceptable, the submitting DPE engineer will get a non- acceptable grade and is subject to a disciplinary action from the Fairfax County Advisory Plans Examiner Board (APEB) as a built in accountability measure. The submitting engineers will be notified of the status of the plan review results by phone, fax/form letter or email by the ESIPRT as soon as the review is completed.
