Make New SFN Requester Information

Please read the steps below as some instructions have changed.  Once a unique Structure File Number (SFN) is created then that series of numbers is locked.  

I. Make-New Request:  Fill out this form request a unique SFN.  This SFN will be placed in the Proposed or Inactive status.  Expect 2-10 business-day response-time.  Do not email Kammy directly for Make-New requests.  Fill out the form below to ensure a successful make-new SFN transaction. 

II. Work to be done After a Make-New Request:  After the Bridge is constructed, then the entire inventory and the initial inspection must be performed.  Data must be entered within the "Edit Asset Values" button in AssetWise.  A separate Make-Active form must be filled out to request the SFN to be made Active.  After the SFN has the initial inspection and is made-active then the "Create Report" button may be used. Until then do not create reports.
