FIVE YEAR VISION STATEMENT FOR ENHANCED PUBLIC SAFETY, ECONOMIC COMPETITIVENESS & DISASTER RESILIENCY THROUGH STREAMLINING

LIST OF ALLIANCE PARTNERS FROM 2001 – 2006


FOR REVIEW AND DISCUSSION DURING CONFERENCE –  PROPOSED NATIONAL STREAMLINING CAMPAIGN VISION AND MISSION STATEMENTS:

A PROPOSED NATIONAL STREAMLINING CAMPAIGN VISION STATEMENT: IN FIVE YEAR’S TIME:

*  Losses of property and life from manmade natural disasters will be reduced through an increase in the number of jurisdictions adopting and enforcing building codes with disaster mitigation provisions.
*  the nation will annually save over $30 billion in unnecessary construction costs
* public safety, infrastructure, technological innovation, and disaster resilience will be increased through regulatory streamlining which identifies and eliminates areas of overlap, duplication, conflict and inefficiency in the building and land use regulatory processes.
Streamlining is the MORE effective and efficient enforcement of statutes, rules, regulations, processes, and procedures adopted by all levels of government.   Streamlining is NOT regulatory abandonment.

PROPOSED MISSION STATEMENT  -   

By 2012, working together the public and private sector partners of this national streamlining initiative will:
Strengthen national disaster resilience and economic competitiveness of the United States by identifying best practices and facilitating their implementation to streamline the building and land use regulatory processes to deliver services that make construction safer, more predictable, timely, and less costly through the identification and elimination of areas of regulatory overlap, duplication and the use of integrated technologies, processes and procedures. 
Streamlining will:    

-   Annually save the public and private sectors over $30 billion in unnecessary construction costs do to regulatory duplication, time delays and other inefficiencies by reducing between 40%-60% the amount of time it takes to move construction projects through the regulatory system.

-  Create greater enforcement uniformity enabling state and local governments to make effective use of information technology and link and use 3 & 4 D building design (as built) and other data generated by the building design and construction community.

-   Create greater code and enforcement uniformity enabling state and local governments to work together on a regional basis to better plan, train, mitigate, respond to and recover from man-made and natural disasters.

-   Identify and eliminate or reduce prior to disasters those Federal, state and local statutes, rules, regulations, processes and procedures that impede reconstruction, saving minimum of  3-6 months of recovery time.
