Engineer's negligent filings result in exclusion from self-certification programs.
ALJ Kevin Casey found that a licensed engineer submitted four professionally certified applications in 2008 containing errors that demonstrated incompetence or a lack of knowledge of applicable laws. Finding petitioner's conduct to be negligent, but not fraudulent, ALJ Casey found that permanent exclusion from the Department's limited supervisory review and professional certification programs would be an excessive penalty.
