Richard J.A. Temple, PE
2015 FICE President

We encourage you to support our fundraising efforts to the fullest extent possible. FICE supports those candidates who believe that by investing in our infrastructure, roads, bridges, ports, schools and the environment—we will create a better Florida. FICE's PACs have been busy supporting pro-business candidates in both Tallahassee and Washington, D.C.  Our Consulting Engineers Legislative Council (CELC) and Florida Engineers PAC (FEPAC) have contributed to 28 Florida Legislators in Tallahassee this election cycle. ACEC, our national organization, has contributed over $56,000 to pro-business legislators in Washington, D.C. who represent Florida. All of this is possible through the support of our members.         

Let’s support those candidates who believe in a well-engineered Florida.

EPA Releases Guidance for New QBS Mandate in WRRDA

ACEC worked with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to refine agency guidance for states in applying new Qualifications-Based Selection (QBS) requirements for water projects. The guidance can be accessed here, and applies to projects funded on or after October 1.

The new QBS rules, which are included in the Water Resources Reform & Development Act (WRRDA), direct states to use QBS for wastewater projects funded through the Clean Water Act State Revolving Fund (SRF) program. States have the option of following the federal Brooks Act or using an equivalent state procedure modeled after the federal law.
