Quarterly Report Form
Quarterly Report for Permit Consultants (SFEC Form 3410B) must be filed electronically through the City and County of San Francisco’s DocuSign system by starting the form using the section below. The DocuSign filing process involves two key steps – completing the form and signing the form – which may involve two participants. The form allows a staff member or representative to initiate and complete the form electronically, and route it to the permit consultant for signature. After the form is completed and submitted in the first step, an email will be automatically sent to the permit consultant with instructions for his/her signature. The permit consultant can then electronically sign the form in DocuSign by following the instructions in the email. The permit consultant may also complete and sign the form without the assistance of a staff member or representative by entering his/her information in the fields below as the person completing and signing the form.
