Description
The Board issued a Default Final Order against Marcia Lynn Karr for not disclosing conflicts of interest to her employer and multiple clients when offering engineering software services. While Ms. Karr was employed with the City of Portland, Bureau of Development Services (BDS) as a Mechanical & Energy Code Plan Reviewer, she personally marketed, trained customers on, and profited from an engineering product she had developed for designing building plans – a thing of value – when she worked as a plan reviewer for the municipality where those plans would be submitted for review – which created a relationship between that thing of value and the services she was providing. Ms. Karr marketed the private planning tool to clients and new customers, and did so on city time while employed full time. These circumstances constituted a conflict of interest because it would promote her software product if she approved plans she reviewed that used it, the circumstances of her conduct could also influence her judgment as a plan reviewer and the quality of her BDS services. Karr did not disclose this simultaneous conduct or the circumstances surrounding it to BDS or to the persons to whom she marketed the software to, in writing. The final order was issued against Marcia Lynn Karr assessing a $1,000 civil penalty and a 90-day suspension of her professional engineering registration pursuant to ORS 183.745, 672.200, and 672.325.
