Richard J.A. Temple, PE
2015 FICE President
The holidays are here. The elections are over and planning for the New Year is well under way.
Changes in leadership are underway in several of the state agencies that are important to the engineering community. New leadership will bring new ideas and possibly new methods. The strength of FICE as an organization will once again benefit all members as we provide continuity of representation during these changes. FICE leadership will maintain the strong ties between the consulting engineering industry and the important public agencies that are so vital to the infrastructure of Florida...Read all of President Temple's message as it appears in the December FICE Update, by clicking on the button below.
DBE – FDOT Business Development Program
Construction Estimating Institute (CEI) is the new Florida Department of Transportation DBE Supportive Services Provider. CEI administers the Business Development Program (BDP), whose goal is to help DBEs grow their businesses and sustain that growth. Through the Business Development Program, CEI works one-on-one with DBEs, developing business plans and assisting with obtaining contracts. If a DBE enrolls in the Business Development Program and meets all program requirements, CEI will assist the DBE with paying their FICE or FTBA dues (up to $500 per DBE for the first 40 BDP participants). CEI can only pay first year dues for new members to FICE or FTBA, and those members must be active participants in the BDP program. The program does require commitment on the part of participants. Tom Quinn is the BDP project manager and would be glad to answer any questions about the program. Tom can be reached at 941-349-5401 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
