If the plans submitted through eConnect are required to be signed and sealed by a design professional, the contractor and design professional will need to coordinate efforts to comply with governing laws regarding electronic signatures. For help, send an email to eConnect@leegov.com, call 239-533-8329, or review the additional information section below.
Step 1 - Create Account:
Each user will need to create an account.
Step 2 - Register Contractor License/Digital Signature:
If the user account will be associated with a licensed contractor, the license number of the contractor must be added to the user’s account, and the Lee County Contractor eConnect Agreement must be submitted to eConnect@leegov.com for processing.
If the user account will be associated with a licensed design professional, the Design Professional Digital Signature Affidavit must be submitted to eConnect@leegov.com for processing.
If the user account is not associated with a licensed contractor or design professional, this step may be skipped.
Step 3 – Submit:
Log in to your eConnect account and select “Create an Application” under the appropriate department. Read and agree to the terms and conditions and select “Continue Application.”
