Voluntary Expedited Endangered Resources (VEER) Review

A VEER Review is an ER Review completed by department staff in a guaranteed turnaround time of seven working days. Customers still have the option to use the regular ER Review service for a lower cost. The turnaround time for regular ER Reviews varies depending on workload and staffing.

Availability and processing

The completed VEER Review is equivalent in all respects to a regular ER Review, with the exception that it is completed in the guaranteed timeframe of seven working days* (projects received after 2 p.m. will not be processed until the following day).

The ER Review Program can only commit to providing this VEER Review service when the project has been confirmed to be eligible. Upon receipt of all materials, the ER Review Program will notify the applicant regarding whether a VEER Review can be completed for the project. If not, the ER Review Program will return your check to you and alternatives will be discussed.

*Note: State legal holidays are not considered working days. These days are: New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Eve Day.
