(a) An evaluation of the feasibility of allowing online applications for such permit, license or registration, including but not limited to, an evaluation of (i) technical issues, such as software, information technology infrastructure and web compatibility, (ii) issues related to the privacy or security of information in such applications and (iii) costs of allowing online applications for such permit, license or registration;

(b) If such office determines that allowing online applications for such permit, license or registration would be feasible, a plan and timeline for allowing such online applications;

3. A description of any web portals used to apply online for permits, licenses and registrations;

4. An evaluation of the feasibility of creating and maintaining a single web portal that can be used to access the application for each permit, license or registration for which online applications are accepted, including but not limited to technical issues, such as software, information technology infrastructure and web compatibility; and

5. A plan and timeline for creating and maintaining such a portal to the extent feasible.

                     b. On or before June 1, 2018, such office shall report to the mayor and the council on the findings of such review.
