PUBLIC WORKS CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT LICENSING ACT
54-4509. Certificates of authority for firms. (1) No firm shall provide or hold itself out as providing construction management services unless it has a certificate of authority issued by the administrator. If one (1) or more principals or employees of a firm are licensed construction managers, the firm may apply to the administrator for a certificate of authority to provide and hold itself out as providing construction management services. An application for a certificate of authority shall:
(a) Designate the licensed construction manager or managers, who are principals or employees of the firm, specified to be in responsible charge of construction management services provided by the firm;
(b) Be accompanied by a statement signed by such licensed construction manager or managers accepting the responsibility and duty to provide construction management services for the firm; and
(c) Contain such other information as the administrator reasonably may require.
If the administrator concludes that the construction manager or managers designated by the firm is or are licensed in good standing and that the firm meets such other criteria reasonably established by the board, he shall issue a certificate of authority to the firm authorizing it to provide and hold itself out as providing construction management services.
(2) If the construction manager or managers designated by the firm cease to be licensed or to be principals or employees of the firm, the firm shall immediately notify the administrator in writing and shall cease to hold itself out as qualified to offer construction management services. Upon receiving such notification, the administrator shall suspend the firm’s certificate of authority. If the firm is in the process of providing construction management services when its designated licensed construction manager becomes unable to provide those services, the firm shall complete the construction management services for the project by using the services of another licensed construction manager who need not be a principal or employee of the firm. The firm shall not provide or hold itself out as providing construction management services for other projects until the administrator has reinstated the firm’s certificate of authority which the administrator shall do if the firm submits an application for reinstatement of its certificate of authority, which shall contain the information required for an original application together with such other information as the administrator reasonably may require, and the administrator finds such application to be satisfactory and complete.
