MONTREAL — The disciplinary council of Quebec’s engineers society has announced sanctions against two engineers it found guilty of participating in municipal contract-sharing schemes.
The Ordre des ingenieurs du Quebec (OIQ) announced decisions of guilt and sanctions in the cases of Michel Auger and Pierre Moffet on Sept. 7.
Both men will be temporarily struck from the roll for participating in a scheme the OIQ determined was aimed at circumventing Quebec City's municipal competitive bidding process.
Auger will be struck off the OIQ's roll for 14 months.
The disciplinary council found him guilty of violating several sections of the Code of Ethics of Engineers for going along with a contract sharing scheme between 2007 and 2010 while he was responsible for the infrastructure division of CIMA+ in Quebec City, the statement indicated.
Moffet will be struck off the OIQ's roll for 12 months.
The disciplinary council similarly found him guilty of violating the ethics code for going along with a contract sharing scheme between 2006 and 2010 while he was vice president of CIMA+ in Quebec City.
The council also ordered the two respondents to pay all costs in connection with the disciplinary proceedings, including publication costs.
