In the 2002 legislative session the Florida legislature enacted section 120.551 of the Florida Statutes
which authorized the Department's Internet Publication of Official Notices. After a successful pilot project,
the Department was authorized to continue the Internet Publication of Florida
Administrative Weekly (FAW) notices.
On June 7, 2006, the Governor signed into law SB 262, which provides
that the Department of State shall publish an official Internet version of the
Florida Administrative Weekly that will provide the public with a service
similar to that which has been provided by the DEP Internet Noticing site,
except that it will apply to all agencies. Accordingly, the DEP has ceased to
publish new notices on this DEP site, and will only
publish official notices in the Department of State’s Official Internet version
and hard copy of the Florida Administrative Weekly at
This DEP noticing site will be
maintained only for the purpose of searching and viewing archived notices
previously published on this site.
