Licensee was charged with violating Sections 455.227(1)(k) and 471.033(1)(a), Florida Statutes; failing to perform any statutory or legal obligation placed upon licensee. Licensee sent the Board an application to change the information upon which the Certificate of Authorization was based. The change was due to the fact that the Professional Engineer who had previously acted as Licensee’s engineering principal officer was no longer acting as such. However, and despite several notices, the new principal officer was never listed as a principal officer at the Florida Secretary of State’s website and no corporate resolution were ever received by the Board.
Ruling: The case was presented to the full Board upon a Settlement Stipulation. The Board imposed costs of $247.65, an administrative fine of $1,000.00, appearance before the Board, and Licensee must cease and desist from offering engineering services without the Professional Engineering license or Certificate of Authorization required by Florida law. Final Order was issued on April 19, 2018.
Violation: Sections 455.227(1)(k) and 471.033(1)(a), Florida Statutes
