What is a Consortium/Third Party Administrator (CTPA)?
A Consortium/Third-Party Administrators (CTPA) is an association of employers that join together, as a single entity, for the purpose of DOT drug and alcohol testing of its members. The member companies add their employees to a combined random testing pool. The consortium administrator updates the pool and manages the selection process. They perform tasks as agreed to by the employer to assist in implementing the drug and alcohol testing program and to help keep the employer compliant with the DOT/FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Testing rules and regulations.
The Whiz Guys
The Whiz Guys are a consortium that will manage the DOT random testing programs of several employers, including those of owner-operators who are not permitted to manage random testing themselves. This offers owner-operator a special service saving them both time and money with this very unique service offered by The Whiz Guys.
Most small business employers would benefit from joining The Whiz Guys Random Pool for drug and alcohol testing. If your company is small, meaning you have 5 or less employees that require DOT drug and alcohol testing, then you will be automatically enrolled into the Whiz Guys Random Pool. Additionally, The Whiz Guys offer larger companies the option of joining this same consortium or having their own dedicated pool manage solely by The Whiz Guys. The program and technology works the same for these customers, except they function in a standalone pool of their own employees.
The Whiz Guys is in compliance with the Department of Transportation guidelines to include the following types of test: Pre-employment, Random, Reasonable Suspicion, Post-Accident, Return-to-Duty, and Follow-up.
The Whiz Guys will work with your company’s Designated Employer Representative (DER) to ensure proper responsibility is accounted for drug and alcohol testing procedures. The Whiz Guys provides Management Information System (MIS) reports. The Whiz Guys will provide and maintain Federal and Client reporting and certification.
The Whiz Guys offer a consortium of transportation-related companies for purposes of complying with Department of Transportation regulations. The Department of Transportation regulations are for the purpose of, but not limited to, ensuring large enough random selection pools for drug and alcohol testing and ensuring meaningful and valid drug and alcohol information for statistical analysis.

The tasks you actually perform qualify you as a safety-sensitive employee, not your job title. Also, some employees, like managers and supervisors, may be qualified for these jobs but not currently performing them. Do they have to be tested as well? In most cases, yes...if that employee may be asked at a moment’s notice or in an emergency to perform a safety-sensitive job. Be sure to check industry specific regulations for further clarification.
