Notwithstanding the provision of any general or special law to the contrary, in order to implement its school building program, the city of Boston may, in addition to the prequalification requirements pursuant to section 44D of chapter 149 of the General Laws, establish and impose a requirement that only contractors and subcontractors with a workers' compensation experience modification factor, as promulgated by the workers' compensation rating bureau, of 125 per cent or less shall be eligible to submit a bid or offer, but any contractor or subcontractor with a modification factor of up to 135 per cent shall be eligible to submit a bid or offer, if that modification factor was caused by a single loss.
