I've been an FDOT Whistleblower since 2013.

I've been witness to the "depths of Corporate and Government Corruption" in Florida.

I read the reports of HNTB employees sleeping on-duty at the FDOT District Five Orlando Regional Traffic Management Ceneter - and the resulting false billings (false claims) that HNTB invoiced to the FDOT - and that the FDOT paid to HNTB - in FULL.

I learned that I am not the first FDOT consultant (thank you Steve Thompson) to voice displeasure with the FDOT Office of Inspector General (OIG), for ignoring my complaint(s), and then immediately forwarding the complaint(s) to the individual District Secretaries, to bless their own unethical behavior.

Across America, HNTB:

1.   Relies on political contributions and political lobbying to win lucrative Government contracts

2.   Relies and thrives on hiring their Government Clients (i.e. FDOT Secretaries and Directors) --- to purposefully and illegitimately win lucrative Government contracts

And here in Florida, there is no penalty for such illegal Corporate behavior.

The FDOT OIG has not punished or prosecuted any engineering firm, for any type of infraction, for over five (5) years.

None of the engineering consulting firms here in Florida ever get into any trouble with the FDOT.

That is about to change drastically in 2020.

HNTB hired the FDOT Managers listed below, in South Florida alone, and these are only the ones I know of. HNTB uses these "insiders" to illegitemately win lucrative FDOT contracts.
