We are quite surprised that in spite of having large population of young engineers who are doing exemplary work in their respective organisations, very few applications have been received for “National Young Engineers Award 2016” being promoted by CEAI. It could be that young engineers are not informed of such an opportunity and, therefore, I strongly urge all the members who are directly in receipt of our communication to filter down the message to the young engineers and also encourage them to participate in the competition. In order to provide wider opportunity for participation we have extended the date of receipt of nominations to 31 August, 2016. As you will appreciate, seniors have to encourage young professionals to come forward and participate.
We have been working on revising the professional fee structure for consultancy assignments for quite some time and the final draft is now ready. We are seeking comments from our members with a view to incorporate the good suggestion and finalise the same in the coming weeks. We would strongly advise that our members follow the recommended fee structure and also promote that with the clients. You will all agree that unless we are paid “just” fee to cover our costs, we will fail to render optimum level of service.
There are at times complaints about the services provided by consultants and one way to stop that is to ask for optimum fee to ensure that adequate number of experienced man months are provided for an assignment.
Please send your comments at the earliest so that we can finalise the document.
