Do you have a complaint regarding a particular engineer? Do you suspect a PE has committed negligence in engineering or not complied with the Board’s Rules governing the practice of engineering? If so, please contact the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE) or the Florida Engineers Management Corporation (FEMC) at (850) 521-0500.
When you call the FBPE or FEMC, you will be transferred to our investigator. This is where the investigative process begins. The investigator will take down the specifics of your complaint as well as any and all information that you can provide. You will be provided with a Uniform Complaint Form which must be filled out and mailed back to the FBPE or FEMC along with any supporting documentation you may have. The information contained on this form will be analyzed and, if determined to be legally sufficient to begin an investigation, will be assigned a case number. Generally speaking, a complaint is legally sufficient to justify
the initiation of an investigation if it meets two tests. First, it must allege a violation of statutes or rules over which the FBPE has jurisdiction to act, and, second, it must set out sufficient specific verifiable facts underlying the allegations so as to allow FEMC, which acts on behalf of the FBPE, to determine that a violation of those statutes or rules may have occurred and that an investigation is warranted; supposition or surmise are not sufficient. Nearly every complaint received is forwarded to a FEMC consultant for pre- review. Upon receipt of the pre-review opinion, the complaint is reviewed by the prosecuting attorney. If it is determined the complaint is not legally sufficient, it will be dismissed at this point. If legal sufficiency is found, the complaint will be fully investigated.

Laserfiche® recently announced its 2012 RunSmarter® Award Winners, and FBPE was selected as one of the 28 domestic and international Laserfiche® users representing multiple industries, such as commercial, education, financial services, government, healthcare and justice systems.
Each of the 2012 winners represent the evolving use of Laserfiche® and include organizations that have configured the use of the application as a foundation for shared services, introduced mobile electronic content management (ECM) solutions into the workforce and used Laserfiche® to enable better customer service.
Prior to implementing Laserfiche®, FBPE’s record management system lacked standardization, documents were stored in multiple locations both physically and electronically, and allowed for duplicate record keeping, making document retention and retrieval laborious and time consuming. With the implementation of Laserfiche®, FBPE has created one central repository for any and all documents including the ongoing effort of converting some 70,000 engineer records stored on microfiche; eliminated the multiple file types, formats and naming standards being used; automated the initial application intake and board review process; made all documents searchable by any key word; and can now generate reports and statistics on all record activity. For a full list of all of the RunSmarter® Award winners go to http://www.laserfiche.com/NewsPortal/?p=12086.
Each year MCCi awards three clients who have demonstrated excellence through the use of MCCi's solutions. Applicants are required to demonstrate how their use of a MCCi solution has simplified their business processes and saved both time and money along the way. All entries are judged by MCCi staff members during the judging process, they focus on specific results such as decreased environmental impact, time savings, costs savings, improved transparency, and process automation. The top three are then voted upon and the awards announced to MCCi’s entire client base of more than 500.
FBPE’s submission on how it incorporated the Laserfiche® application into its business workflows and processes stood out above the rest due to their adept leadership in implementing a solution that improved their internal record retention and retrieval system while proving to save the organization both time and money.
