The contractor must be an entity that has the legal capacity to contract. Typically, contractors are individuals, corporations, limited liability companies, or other units of government. If a contractor identifies itself as some other kind of entity than one of these four, then the contractor must provide a copy of the legal documents under which it has been created. If the contractor is a corporation or a limited liability company, it must either be registered to do business in North Carolina with the North Carolina Secretary of State, or it must provide a certificate of good standing from the Secretary of State of the State in which it is organized. A copy of the screen page from NC Secretary of State Website showing active status must be presented before a contract be awarded.
