custom on how governments are handling engineering projects in the present age. The aspect
of integrity and openness, in how planning and allocation of duties are done has been eroded
by bribes and shortcuts. This has caused many engineering government projects’ to go down
the drain with minimal benefits to the taxpayers and the funds end up enriching only the
board members and associates responsible for the project.
According to Vesilind (2017), a civil engineering role during project implementation
is to design and account for the environmental changes in the target area. It further
necessitates that at least eight engineers should be present and in approval of the project plan.
This eliminates biases in decision making by enabling enough brainstorming and outsourcing
of necessary resources for the project at hand. In the Ethicana scenario, only one main
engineer is being given consideration and this overshadows his credibility of handling all
decisions efficiently.
