The Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) regulates construction and business activity in the District. This includes conducting property maintenance inspections that are complaint based and proactive inspections.

In particular, we are automating the process for researching qualification, reducing travel times for inspectors, and, crucially, exploring a notion of risk to prioritize certain buildings for inspection.
