Amends GS 143-135.8 requiring the North Carolina Department of Labor (NCDOL) to develop a standardized questionnaire and rating system to assess bidders on objective metrics of occupational safety and health performance for the purpose of prequalifying bidders and their subcontractors on construction contracts. Requires the questionnaire and system to be effective January 1, 2014, and specifies items that must be included. Each bidder must provide the awarding authority a list of all subcontractors that will perform construction work for the contract. Subcontractors that have not been prequalified are not permitted to perform work under the contract. A bidder is ineligible to submit a bid or be awarded a construction contract if: (1) that bidder does not furnish proof of current workers' compensation coverage or (2) an awarding authority has determined in the preceding five years that a company officer, agent, or person with substantial ownership in the company provided false or misleading information.
