NEC Section 250 says so. Two #4 bars will do it, but there are certain other requirements. I would leave it to the electrical engineer for details.

Subject: Grounding rebar

Is there a code requirement that says that rebar in a slab or footing has to be grounded?  I have an electrical engineer telling me NEC says so.
