Please explain the licensing requirements for a contractor intending to bid or engage in electrical contracting work on a Federal project located on federally-owned property.
Where certain land has been coded to the Federal Government under NCGS 104-7 and a Federal project is to be constructed on such land, state licensing regulations would not be applicable to a contractor bidding or hired to work on the project. This would mean that an electrical contractor not licensed in North Carolina could perform work on a Federal project located on federally-owned land within North Carolina without having to first obtain a North Carolina license. Generally, such a Federal construction project would take place on land ceded by the State to the Federal Government for military installations such as Fort Bragg, Pope Air Force Base, Camp Lejeune, New River Marine Corps Air Station, Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, Cherry Point Marine Corps Air Station, Military Ocean Terminal at Sunny Point, or the US Coast Guard Air Station at Elizabeth City.
The situation would be different if the land were only leased by the Federal Government, but still owned by the state or others. In such a case, North Carolina licensing regulations would continue to be applicable and any contractor bidding or performing electrical work on such project would have to conform with the state's licensing requirements.
If the qualified individual leaves the licensed firm, can the firm complete an outstanding project?
Upon loss of the listed qualified individual (resignation, termination, or death), a (former) licensee may continue electrical work where all of the following conditions are met:
(A) There is a substantiated Electrical Contract for the particular structure and specific location prior to the removal of a Qualified Individual from an Electrical Contracting License.
(B) There is an electrical permit issued for the particular structure and specific location prior to the removal of a Qualified Individual from an Electrical Contractor's License.
(C) Electrical work has begun at the specific location prior to the removal of a Qualified Individua from an Electrical Contractor's License.
(D) Board staff and the local electrical inspector investigate and confirm that Electrical Journeymen on the site possess the skills and knowledge to continue the electrical project and (in case of several projects) management moves expeditiously to replace the qualifier.
