Drug and Alcohol Testing Compliance Audits

Audits are conducted to assist transit agencies in achieving a drug- and alcohol-free workforce in the interest of the health and safety of transit employees and the traveling public. This project provides ongoing support for the Drug and Alcohol Testing Compliance Audits program to ensure grantees' compliance with federal drug and alcohol testing regulations. Compliance audits are conducted on sites of transit agencies receiving federal funds and are based on a comprehensive review process, covering every aspect of an agency's drug and alcohol testing program. Audit findings and lessons learned are summarized periodically, published, and distributed to the transit community. Additional activities include technical assistance and training, which are conducted at various locations across the country. Under the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act passed by Congress in 1991, FTA is required to establish regulations for drug and alcohol testing of transit employees performing safety-sensitive functions.
