National Transit Database (NTD)
was established by Congress to be the nation's primary source for information and statistics on the transit systems of the United States. Recipients and beneficiaries of grants from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) under the Urbanized Area Formula Program (§5307) or Formula Grants for Rural Areas Program (§5311) are required by statute to submit data to the NTD. Funding recipients receive notification from ODOT Public Transit to prepare annual data submissions.
Drug & Alcohol Testing Management Information System (DAMIS)
The Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 mandated the Secretary of Transportation to issue regulations to combat prohibited drug use and alcohol misuse in the transportation industry. The DAMIS
supports FTA's authority and responsibility to oversee compliance with these regulations
Funding recipients receive notification from ODOT Public Transit to prepare annual data submissions.
If your organization provides all transportation services: Use your user name and password to log on to FTA's web site (http://damis.dot.gov
and enter the information for your organization. Enter the data included on the report furnished to you by your Third Party Administrator (TPA) for your testing program.
If your organization does not directly provide transportation service and has no safety sensitive employees: Enter all zeros for your organization.
If your organization uses a contractor (purchased service): You are responsible for reporting testing data for organization(s) providing service on your behalf. You may pass on the user name(s) and password(s) to your contractor(s) or you may enter the data yourself. In either case, you are responsible for reviewing and approving all data before the data are submitted online.
When multiple subrecipients use the same contractor to provide transportation services, the contractor must report results by subrecipient.
If you added or removed a contractor during the calendar year (January 1-December 31), please let us know so we can update our records. Testing results should be reported for the contractor for the time period under contract and performing safety-sensitive functions during the year.
If the new contractor replaced a former contractor (within the same calendar year), also report testing results for the former contractor by submitting a completely separate MIS report. Do not combine the two contractors' results in one submission; submit them separately.
If you are a member of a consortium and you receive results for the entire consortium, you will need to get results for your organization. This is an employer-based reporting requirement and submissions must be by employers, not consortia.

U.S. Department of Labor - Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS)
When federal funds are used to acquire, improve, or operate a transit system, federal law requires arrangements to protect the rights of affected mass transit employees. These arrangements must be approved by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) before the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Transit Administration (FTA) can release funds to grantees.The terms and conditions of the protective arrangements are included in the grantee's contract with FTA.
To satisfy employee protection requirements and comply with the procedural requirements
for the §5311 program, ODOT Public Transit, as the state applicant, must certify the following information for each subrecipient:
Project description and type of assistance
List of the transit providers in the service area of the subrecipient's project
List of labor organizations representing employees of the subrecipients and labor organizations representing other transit providers in the service area of the project.
