A detailed description of the MSHDA environmental review process including a process flow chart and MSHDA's Qualified Consultant's List is available in one document. The included MSHDA Qualified Consultants List is aimed to provide developers with a list of environmental consultants approved by the Authority that will provide the necessary reports and documentation needed to meet MSHDA Environmental Review Requirements. These consultants were chosen through an RFQ process and are entrusted to provide adequate and timely information that expedites the development process for both MSHDA and the Developer. Next to each consultant's name are the category of services for which they are approved, including Enviro (Phase I, Phase II, BEA, Due Care, etc), NEPA (for development utilizing federal resources), Asbestos and Lead (for developments needing asbestos or lead paint inspection or abatement). Choosing a consultant from this list is highly recommended though not compulsory. Sponsors who elect to use environmental consultants not on the approved list are responsible for any cost incurred by MSHDA if additional technical review is required.
