Submit Data for an Existing Project
Developers are required to submit their data and materials through the Article 80 Developer Portal. As projects progress through the Article 80 process, developers can regularly access the portal to maintain and update their data.
A project manager reviews all data and materials upon developer submission and coordinates updates to the Article 80 database. Approved data updates are published on the project website, facilitating public participation in the Article 80 review process.
Request Pre-file for a New Project
To submit a project concept to the BPDA and initiate the pre-file process, Developers must create a new project page through the Development Portal. If you are part of a Development Team and need to create an account, please Request an Account.
