Building Surveyors face an increased VBA reporting requirement and potential for a longer permit issuance process with the Victorian Building Authority's new Building Activity Management System (BAMS).

Tell me how BCS can help

BCS fully integrates with BAMS to ensure 100% accuracy and no double data entry when applying for permits. The VBA requires 53 data fields to apply for a Building Permit Number — double-entering this data into BAMS as well as your building permit costs valuable time. BCS solves this problem by consolidating all the data in your own BCS cloud database with an interface to BAMS. All the data to apply for a permit is ready to load into BAMS with one click — no double entry.

Monthly Levy Reporting has been replaced with monthly Prescribed Event Reporting in BAMS. Now there are 22 different events that need to be reported to the VBA including:

  • Exemptions granted
  • Performance Solutions
  • Permits issued
  • Commencement or Date of First Inspection
  • Extension to Completion Expiry
  • All inspections
  • Occupancy Permit or Certificate of Final Inspection
  • Permit Completion Lapse or Permit abandoned

BCS logs prescribed events automatically as you go about your daily business, and gives you a quick and seamless CSV report every month to fulfil all your BAMS reporting obligations.
