Title 43, Chapter 14, Section 8.2 (43-14-8.2)

(a) For purposes of this Code section only, "division" means the "Division of Utility Contractors."

(b) After June 30, 1994, no sole proprietorship, partnership, or corporation shall have the right to engage in the business of utility contracting unless such business holds a utility contractor license and there is regularly connected with such business a person or persons who holds a valid utility manager certificate issued under this chapter. Such utility manager must be actually engaged in the performance of such business on a full-time basis and oversee the utility contracting work of all employees of the business. In cases where a sole proprietorship, partnership, or corporation has more than one permanent office, then each permanent office shall be registered with the division and at least one person who holds a valid utility manager certificate issued under this chapter shall be stationed in each office on a full-time basis and shall oversee the utility contracting work of all employees of that office.

(c) Any corporation, partnership, or sole proprietorship desiring to qualify and be issued a utility contractor license under the provisions of this subsection shall:

(1) Submit a completed application to the division on the form provided indicating:

(A) The names and addresses of proprietor, partners, or officers of such applicant;

(B) The place and date such partnership was formed or such corporation was incorporated; and

(C) The name of the qualifying utility manager holding a current certificate who is employed for each permanent office location of the business from which utility contracting is performed;

(2) Submit its safety policy which must meet the minimum standards established by the board;

(3) Pay or have paid the required fees; and

(4) Not be otherwise in violation of this chapter.

(d) The decision of the division as to the qualifications of applicants shall, in the absence of fraud, be conclusive.

(e) It shall be the duty of the utility manager certificate holders and the licensed utility contractor to notify the division, in accordance with board rules, of severance of connection between such utility contractor and the utility manager certificate holder or holders upon whom the qualification of the utility contractor rested.

(f) In the event that a licensed utility contractor temporarily does not have employed a utility manager certificate holder to oversee its utility contracting work, upon notice by such utility contractor to the division within five days following the last day of employment of the utility manager certificate holder, the division shall grant the utility contractor a 90 day grace period in which to employ a utility manager certificate holder to oversee its utility contracting work before any action may be taken by the division to revoke the utility contractor's license. The division may, at its discretion, upon application by the utility contractor showing good cause grant one additional 90 day grace period. Grace periods totaling not more than 180 days may be granted during any two-year period. Failure to have employed a utility manager certificate holder to oversee the utility contracting work of the utility contractor shall be grounds for the revocation or suspension of the utility contractor license after a notice of hearing.

(g) All applicants for renewal of utility contractor licenses provided for by this Code section shall be required to submit with the required fee a completed application on a form provided by the division.

(h) After June 30, 1994, it shall be unlawful for any contracting body to open or consider any bid for utility contracting unless the bidder has obtained the license required by this Code section or intends to have the utility contracting work performed by another person who has obtained such license. The utility contractor license number of the person who will perform the utility work shall be written on the face of the bid envelope, unless otherwise provided. If 50 percent or more of any multifaceted project being bid is utility work, the bidder must have obtained a utility license and his or her number must be written on the face of the bid.
