Drug and Alcohol Management Information System

This ongoing project supports the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991, which authorized the Department of Transportation to mandate substance abuse management programs in various transportation industries for safety-sensitive employees. FTA published the final drug and alcohol testing regulations for transit employers in February 1994, requiring each grant recipient to maintain records and submit annual reports to FTA summarizing the results of its drug abuse and alcohol misuse prevention programs. Recipients of federal funds under Sections 5307, 5309, and 5311 or Chapter 53 of Title 49 of the United States Code are required to implement drug and alcohol testing programs, and submit annual reports to FTA through the drug and alcohol management information system (DAMIS). These annual reports serve as a primary source for evaluating the effectiveness of federal regulations and for supporting future modifications. This project supports the collection and analysis of reports from grantees, summarizing their test results and publishing an annual report. Data collected under this program are an important factor in FTA decisions concerning audits of drug and alcohol testing programs.
